# BITRSHIFT function

The BITRSHIFT function shifts the bits of the input a certain number of places to the right. Bits on the left are filled with zeroes.

## Parts of a BITRSHIFT function

`BITRSHIFT(value, shift_amount)`

 Part Description Notes `value` The number to be shifted. The given value must be a non-negative number. `shift_amount` The number of places to shift the given value. The given number must be a number from -52 to 53. Entering a negative value is effectively a BITLSHIFT function.

## Sample formulas

`BITRSHIFT(18, 2)`

`BITRSHIFT(A2, 4)`

## Notes

Values don't necessarily have to be numbers. Instead, they may be coerced. For example, a string value of "3" can be coerced to be simply 3, and a Boolean value of TRUE can be coerced to 1.

## Examples

In the following example, we use BITRSHIFT with values inlined into the function. The value 8 (represented as 1000 in base 2) has its bits shifted right by the shift amount of 2, resulting in 2 (represented as 10 in base 2):

 A B 1 Formula Result 2 =BITRSHIFT(8, 2) 2

In the next example, a value of 8 being shifted by 2 results in a BITRSHIFT of 2. However, this time we use cell references to use as our values:

 A B C 1 Formula Result Reference cells 2 =BITRSHIFT(C2, C3) 2 8 3 2
