Shifting%Bits%to%the%Left
A%left-shift:
Moves%every%bit%of%a%binary%number%to%the%left
§
§
For%example:
A%left-shift%by%1%gives
§
§
Left-shifting%by%1%doubles%the%value%of%a%number.
In%Python%we%can%apply%the%left-shift%(<<)%to%any%integer:
§
Recall:%Decimal% to%Binary%(On%Paper)
This%is%a%left-to-right%conversion.
We%begin%by%determining%the%leftmost%digit
§
The%first%step%is%tricky%to%perform%computationally,%because%we%need%to%
determine%the%largest%power.
Decimal%to%Binary:%Right-to-Left
For%example:%Let's%convert%139%to%binary:
To%convert%139:%recursively%convert%69,%then%put%a%1%at%the%end!
