I will run a loop that'll subtract 16 from the number. If result is zero than it is divisible else if it goes less than zero than its is not.

Bit wise right shift four times, if integer then divisible.

for(int i=0;in)
            {
                break;
            }
            //number is not divisible by 16
            //which will be decided by the flag

        }
    }

Sorry for that incompleted answer ! I want to say that simply use a loop upto n and multiply each number with 16 and store in a variable and then go for a check if it is matched by n or not.
If matched then flag==true else break;

If a number is divisible by 2^n, do bitwise right shift n times and then bitwise left shift n times to get back the same number.

if(16>>4 == 0 )
  True;
else
 False

The above condition should be 1 instead of 0.

if(16>>4 == 1 )
  True;
else
 False
