Behind the scenes, the tool is using a 32-bit binary number representation of your input. It then shifts it the number of spaces you'd like to move, adding a '0' to the end of the number.

Let's walk through the screenshotted example a step at a time to see how it works:

4<<2 = 16\\(steps)\\ 100\ (4)<<2=\\ 1000\ (8)<<1=\\ 10000\ (16)
