Python Bitwise AND Operator

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}')
Run

Output

5 & 20 = 4
