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 <bits/stdc++.h>
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));
}
}

def multiplyWith4(n):
 
    # returning a number with

    # bit shifring right
    return (n << 2)
 
# derive function
n = 4
print(multiplyWith4(n))

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));
}
}

<?php
// PHP program to multiply
// a number with 4 using
// Bitwise Operator
 
// function the return
// multiply a number
// with 4 using bitwise
// operator
function multiplyWith4($n)
{
     
    // returning a number
    // with multiply with
    // 4 using2 bit
    // shifting right
    return ($n << 2);
}
 
    // Driver Code
    $n = 4;
    echo multiplyWith4($n),"\n";

Javascript




<script>
// javascript program to multiply a number
// with 4 using Bitwise Operator  
// function the return
// multiply a number
// with 4 using bitwise
// operator
function multiplyWith4(n)
{
     
    // returning a number
    // with multiply with
    // 4 using 2 bit shifting
    // right
    return (n << 2);
}
 
// Driver Code
var n = 4;
document.write(multiplyWith4(n));
 
// This code is contributed by Amit Katiyar
</script>

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.
