Multiply any Number with 4 using Bitwise Operator
• Last Updated : 16 Apr, 2021

We are a Number n and our task is multiply the number with 4 using bit-wise Operator.
Examples:

```Input : 4
Output :16

Input :5
Output :20```

Explanation Case 1:- n=4 the binary of 4 is 100 and now shift two bit right then 10000 now the number is 16 that is multiply 4*4=16 ans.
Approach :- (n<<2) shift two bit right

## C++

 `// C++ program to multiply a number with``// 4 using Bitwise Operator``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `// function the return multiply a number``//  with 4 using bitwise operator``int` `multiplyWith4(``int` `n)``{``    ``// returning a number with multiply``    ``// with 4 using2 bit shifring right``    ``return` `(n << 2);``}` `// derive function``int` `main()``{``    ``int` `n = 4;``    ``cout << multiplyWith4(n) << endl;``    ``return` `0;``}`

## Java

 `// Java program to multiply a number``// with 4 using Bitwise Operator` `class` `GFG {``    ` `// function the return``// multiply a number``// with 4 using bitwise``// operator``static` `int` `multiplyWith4(``int` `n)``{``    ` `    ``// returning a number``    ``// with multiply with``    ``// 4 using 2 bit shifting``    ``// right``    ``return` `(n << ``2``);``}` `// Driver Code``public` `static` `void` `main(String[] args)``{``    ``int` `n = ``4``;``    ``System.out.print(multiplyWith4(n));``}``}` `// This code is contributed by Smitha.`

 `// C# program to multiply a number``// with 4 using Bitwise Operator``using` `System;` `class` `GFG {``    ` `// function the return``// multiply a number``// with 4 using bitwise``// operator``static` `int` `multiplyWith4(``int` `n)``{``    ` `    ``// returning a number``    ``// with multiply with``    ``// 4 using 2 bit shifting``    ``// right``    ``return` `(n << 2);``}` `// Driver Code``public` `static` `void` `Main(String[] args)``{``    ``int` `n = 4;``    ``Console.Write(multiplyWith4(n));``}``}` `// This code is contributed by Smitha.`

## Javascript

Output :-

`16`

Generalization : In general, we can multiply with a power of 2 using bitwise operators. For example, suppose we wish to multiply with 16 (which is 24), we can do it by left shifting by 4.
