Intro to Bitwise Operators
Author: Siyong Huang
Goes over the six bitwise operators and the common ways they are used.
Let's take a look at some examples to better understand bitwise operators. Note that you typically won't be asked to use bitwise operators to implement addition/multiplication.
Example - Addition
Try implementing addition using bitwise operators! (Here's an online judge if you want to test it)
Example - Multiplication
Now try implementing multiplication using bitwise operators! (I couldn't find an online judge for multiplication, but here's a similar problem: link)
