a: bitwise shift to the left ~

b: multiplying your binary number by 2,4,8,16

What:

"So a bitwise shift to the left is like multiplying your binary number by 2,4,8,16 etc depending on how many bits you shifted it to the left. A bitwise shift to the right is a like a floor division by 2,4,8,16 etc depending on the number of bits you shifted you number to the right"
