If we wanna do some bit shifting on an octal number manually,then we'll have to first convert it into a binary no. and then perform the shifting.
if a binary no. is like this:
00000011
then >>2 would mean:
11000000
coz 1 is shifted right,and other 1 is shifted right
IF i m wrong pls correct me
Thanks

Hi Gautam,
when you're doing bit shifting, the bits at the end (in the case of right shifting, >> ) are not rotated, as in your example, but simply fall off. Therefore:
0000 0011 >> 2 becomes 0000 0000 (which is zero).
Whether you have an octal, a decimal, a hexadecimal or even a binary number does not matter - internally they are all represented as binary numbers.
