Please enter your answer

first convert numerical value to binary value then arrange into bits and shift 3 bit on right then convert binary value to decimal value.


as per your example 8>>3 first write 8 in binary format then the binary digits should be shifted 3 times sorry the explanation not allowed here.

x >> y can be seen as x divided by "2 to the power y". Or you can imagine x in binary format, and drop y rightmost digits, adding y 0s at the left.

C coder

8 = 01000 after right shift no = 0001 right most 3 bits will be discarded. output = 1

Right shift is equivalent to dividing the number by 2. Here 8 >> 1=4 8>> 2=2 8 >> 3 = 1


This operator shifts the first operand the specified number of bits to the right. Excess bits shifted off to the right are discarded. Copies of the leftmost bit are shifted in from the left

The decimal value need to converted to equivalent binary values and then shift right operation is performed

Binary of 8 is "1000" and here by this command 3 bits of "1000" will be shifted to right. Hence Binary will be "0001" so your expressions answer will be "0001" i.e. 1
