## Bitwise AND Operator

Bitwise AND Operator is used to perform AND operation between two given operands at bit level.

## Symbol

The symbol of bitwise AND operator is `&`

.

## Syntax

The syntax to do bitwise AND operation between the operands: `x`

and `y`

, is

`x & y`

## Example

The following is a simple example of how bitwise AND operation is done between two numbers.

```
x = 5
y = 20
#bit level
x = 00000101
y = 00010100
x & y = 00000100
Therefore x & y = 4
```

In this following program, we take integer values in `x`

, and `y`

, and perform bitwise AND operation between them.

**Python Program**

```
x = 5
y = 20
output = x & y
print(f'{x} & {y} = {output}')
```

**Output**

`5 & 20 = 4`
