FilledSmallSquare BitShiftRight[n, d] shifts the binary bits in the integer n to the right by d places, dropping bits that are shifted past the units position on the right.

FilledSmallSquare BitShiftRight[n, d] is equivalent to IntegerPart[n/2^d].

FilledSmallSquare Negative values of d shift to the left.
