This is simple as you say, you say it by give 15 points :)

to shift to the left just multiple by 2
MyNumner = MyNumner * 2

to shift to the right just divide by 2
MyNumner = MyNumner/2
But this time you need to delete the last bit in case the number was negative so
Do this AND it with the bigest positive number of the variable
In case if byte its 127 so
MyNumner = (MyNumner/2) and 127

Good Luck
