# binary not python code example

## Example 1: binary operation python

```
x << y
"left shifted x by y places"
x >> y
"right shift x by y places"
x & y
"bitwise and"
x | y
"bitwise or".
~ x
"Complement of x"
x ^ y
"bitwise exclusive or"
```

## Example 2: python bitwise operators

```
x << y
Returns x with the bits shifted to the left by y places (and new bits on the right-hand-side are zeros). This is the same as multiplying x by 2**y.
x >> y
Returns x with the bits shifted to the right by y places. This is the same as //'ing x by 2**y.
x & y
Does a "bitwise and". Each bit of the output is 1 if the corresponding bit of x AND of y is 1, otherwise it's 0.
x | y
Does a "bitwise or". Each bit of the output is 0 if the corresponding bit of x AND of y is 0, otherwise it's 1.
~ x
Returns the complement of x - the number you get by switching each 1 for a 0 and each 0 for a 1. This is the same as -x - 1.
x ^ y
Does a "bitwise exclusive or". Each bit of the output is the same as the corresponding bit in x if that bit in y is 0, and it's the complement of the bit in x if that bit in y is 1.
