# Right-shift Operator (>>) Example in C#

Right shift operator in C#: Here, we are going to learn about the right shift operator and how it works with C# program? By Nidhi Last updated : April 15, 2023

Here we will create a program to demonstrate the right shift operation with different values.

## C# program to demonstrate the example of the right-shift operator

The source code to demonstrate the right shift operations with different values in C# is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully on Microsoft Visual Studio.

```//Program to demonstrate the
//example of right shift operator in C#.

using System;

class RightShiftDemo
{
public static void Main()
{
int X = 128;
int Y = 256;

int R = 0;

R = X >> 2;
Console.WriteLine("X>>2 = " + R);

R = Y >> 3;
Console.WriteLine("Y>>3 = " + R);
}
}
```

## Output

```X>>2 = 32
Y>>3 = 32
Press any key to continue . . .
```

## Explanation

In the above program, we created a RightShiftDemo class that contains the Main() method, here we created three integer variables X, Y, and R initialized with 128, 256, and 0.

Now calculate the statements.

```R = X >> 2;
R  =  128 / Power(2,2);
R  =  128 /( 2*2);
R  =  128/4;
R  = 32;
```

Then,

```R = Y >> 3;
R = 256 >> 3;
R = 256/ Power(2,3);
R = 256/(2*2*2);
R = 256/8;
R = 32;
```
