# Visual Basic - bitwise right shift: >>

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.## >>

### Description

`par1 >> par2`

### Input

- par1 - any integer
- par2 - any integer

### Output

- Result - integers

### Examples

## Visual Basic .NET

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

## Visual Basic .NET

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

## Visual Basic .NET

Other pieces of example codes:2 >> 2

(32 >>2)
