# Python | Decimal shift() method

• Last Updated : 05 Sep, 2019

Decimal#shift() : shift() is a Decimal class method which returns the shifted copy of x, y times

Syntax: Decimal.shift()

Parameter: Decimal values

Return: the shifted copy of x, y times

Code #1 : Example for shift() method

 `# Python Program explaining ``# shift() method`` ` `# loading decimal library``from` `decimal ``import` `*`` ` ` ` `# Initializing a decimal value``a ``=` `Decimal(``1``)`` ` `b ``=` `Decimal(``2``)`` ` `# printing Decimal values``print` `(``"Decimal value a : "``, a)``print` `(``"Decimal value b : "``, b)`` ` ` ` `# Using Decimal.shift() method``print` `(``"\n\nDecimal a with shift() method : "``, a.shift(b))`` ` `print` `(``"Decimal b with shift() method : "``, b.shift(b))`

Output :

```Decimal value a :  1
Decimal value b :  2

Decimal a with shift() method :  100
Decimal b with shift() method :  200

```

Code #2 : Example for shift() method

 `# Python Program explaining ``# shift() method`` ` `# loading decimal library``from` `decimal ``import` `*`` ` ` ` `# Initializing a decimal value``a ``=` `Decimal(``300``)`` ` `b ``=` `Decimal(``15``)`` ` ` ` `# printing Decimal values``print` `(``"Decimal value a : "``, a)``print` `(``"Decimal value b : "``, b)`` ` ` ` `# Using Decimal.shift() method``print` `(``"\n\nDecimal a with shift() method : "``, a.shift(b))`` ` `print` `(``"Decimal b with shift() method : "``, b.shift(b))`

Output :

```Decimal value a :  300
Decimal value b :  15

Decimal a with shift() method :  300000000000000000
Decimal b with shift() method :  15000000000000000
