Well, ran into an issue with a programming language that didn't support and's and or's.  Turns out we really didn't need to do it, but I wanted to figure how to do it. So, I did. Here's the c# code to do it. It's pretty straight forward.

using System; 
using System.Collections.Generic; 
using System.Linq; 
using System.Text; 
 
namespace BitChecker 
{ 
    class Program 
    { 
        static void Main(string[] args) 
        { 
            int number = 0; 
            int bitToFind = 0; 
            int maxBit = 0; 
            int newNumber = 0; 
            Console.WriteLine("Number: "); 
            while (!int.TryParse(Console.ReadLine(), out number) || number < 0) 
            { 
                Console.WriteLine("Try again. Put in a number. 0-255"); 
            } 

            Console.WriteLine("Bit Number to find, 1 is farthest left."); 
            while (!int.TryParse(Console.ReadLine(), out bitToFind) || bitToFind < 1) 
            { 
                Console.WriteLine("Try again. Put in a number. 1-16, 1 is farthest left"); 
            } 
            bitToFind--; //since binary is 0 based. 

            newNumber = number; 
            for (int i = 0; Math.Pow(2, i) <= number; i++)
            {
                maxBit = i;
            }

            if (maxBit < bitToFind)
            {
                maxBit = bitToFind;
            }

            string bitMask = string.Empty; 
            bool isSet = false; 
            for (int i = maxBit; i >= 0; i--) 
            { 
                if (newNumber >= Math.Pow(2, i)) 
                { 
                    bitMask = "1" + bitMask; 
                    if (i == bitToFind) { isSet = true; } 
                    newNumber = newNumber - (int)Math.Pow(2, i); 
                } 
                else
                { 
                    bitMask = "0" + bitMask; 
                } 
            } 
            Console.WriteLine("IS SET: {0}", isSet); 
            Console.WriteLine("BITMASK:{0}", bitMask); 
            Console.ReadLine(); 
        } 
    } 
}
