# FreeBASIC - Bitwise right shift: shr

Bit shift to the right as many time shifts the input number to the right as many as the value of the second input. output bits will be lost and the input bits will be 0. bit shift to the right can be used to divide the power of 2. example 256 divided by 2 on the third: 256 we shift to the right three times and the result is 32.## shr

### Description

`par1 shr par2`

### Input

- par1 - Any integer
- par2 - Any integer

### Output

- Result - Integers

### Examples

### FreeBASIC

Bitwise right shift the possible of use:```
x = 8 shr 1 ' x = 4
y = &Hff shr 4 ' y = 15
z = (x shr 2) shr 2 ' z = 0
```

### FreeBASIC

Even one example in what situations we can use the operation bitwise right shift:```
i shr 2
2 shr i
32 shr (&HA shr 2) shr 1
```

### FreeBASIC

Other pieces of example codes:2 shr 2

(32 shr 2)
