    Public Shared Sub Main()
        Dim n as Integer = 129
         
        Console.WriteLine(Convert.ToString(n, 2).PadLeft(8, "0"C))
        Console.WriteLine(Convert.ToString(n - 1, 2).PadLeft(8, "0"C))
        Console.WriteLine(Convert.ToString(n - 2, 2).PadLeft(8, "0"C))
        Console.WriteLine(Convert.ToString((n - 1) And (n - 2), 2).PadLeft(8, "0"C))
        
        if (is_only_first_and_last_bit_set(n)) Then
