# What does bitwise left shift do?

## What does bitwise left shift do?

The bitwise shift operators are the right-shift operator ( >> ), which moves the bits of an integer or enumeration type expression to the right, and the left-shift operator ( << ), which moves the bits to the left.

**What is bitwise right shift operator?**

Bitwise Right shift operator >> is used to shift the binary sequence to right side by specified position.

**How does left and right shift work?**

A bit-shift moves each digit in a number’s binary representation left or right. Within right-shifts, there are two further divisions: logical right-shift and arithmetic right-shift. A left-shift is represented by the << operator, while a right-shift is represented by the >> operator.

### What is left shift operator?

The left shift operator ( << ) shifts the first operand the specified number of bits to the left. Excess bits shifted off to the left are discarded. Zero bits are shifted in from the right.

**What is left and right shift in C?**

Takes two numbers, left shifts the bits of the first operand, the second operand decides the number of places to shift.

**How do you bitwise Shift?**

The left operand specifies the value to be shifted. The right operand specifies the number of positions that the bits in the value are to be shifted….Bitwise left and right shift operators << >>

Operator | Usage |
---|---|

<< | Indicates the bits are to be shifted to the left. |

>> | Indicates the bits are to be shifted to the right. |
