# Shift the bits of integer array elements to the right in Numpy

To shift the bits of integer array elements to the right, use the numpy.right_shift() method in Python Numpy. Bits are shifted to the right x2. Because the internal representation of numbers is in binary format, this operation is equivalent to dividing x1 by 2**x2.

The x1 is the Input values. The x2 is the number of bits to remove at the right of x1. If x1.shape != x2.shape, they must be broadcastable to a common shape.

The function right_shift() returns x1 with bits shifted x2 times to the right. This is a scalar if both x1 and x2 are scalars.

## Steps

At first, import the required library −

import numpy as np

Create a One-Dimensional array −

arr = np.array([56, 87, 23, 92, 81, 98, 45, 98])


Displaying our array −

print("Array...",arr)

Get the datatype −

print("Array datatype...",arr.dtype)


Get the dimensions of the Array −

print("Array Dimensions...",arr.ndim)

Get the shape of the Array −

print("Our Array Shape...",arr.shape)


Get the number of elements of the Array −

print("Elements in the Array...",arr.size)

The count of right shift −

valRight = 3


To shift the bits of integer array elements to the right, use the numpy.right_shift() method in Python Numpy −

print("Result (right shift)...",np.right_shift(arr, valRight))

## Example

import numpy as np

# Create a One-Dimensional array
arr = np.array([56, 87, 23, 92, 81, 98, 45, 98])

# Displaying our array
print("Array...",arr)

# Get the datatype
print("Array datatype...",arr.dtype)

# Get the dimensions of the Array
print("Array Dimensions...",arr.ndim)

# Get the shape of the Array
print("Our Array Shape...",arr.shape)

# Get the number of elements of the Array
print("Elements in the Array...",arr.size)

# The count of right shift
valRight = 3
# To shift the bits of an integer to the right, use the numpy.right_shift() method in Python Numpy
print("Result (right shift)...",np.right_shift(arr, valRight))

## Output

Array...
[56 87 23 92 81 98 45 98]

Array datatype...
int64

Array Dimensions...
1

Our Array Shape...
(8,)

Elements in the Array...
