## Java Integer.rotateRight() – Examples

In this tutorial, we will learn about Java Integer.rotateRight() method, and learn how to use this method to rotate given integer bits in the right direction by given distance, with the help of examples.

## rotateRight(int i, int distance)

Integer.rotateRight(i, distance) returns the value obtained by rotating the two’s complement binary representation of the specified int value `i` right by the specified number of bits `distance`.

### Syntax

The syntax of rotateRight() method with the integer and distance is

`Integer.rotateRight(int i, int distance)`

where

Returns

The method returns value of type int.

### Example 1 – rotateRight(i, distance)

In this example, we will take an integer `1234`, and rotate it right by a distance of `3`.

Java Program

```public class Example {
public static void main(String[] args){
int i = 1234;
int distance = 3;
int result = Integer.rotateRight(i, distance);
System.out.println("Result of rotateRight("+i+", "+distance+") = " + result);
}
}```

Output

`Result of rotateRight(1234, 3) = 1073741978`

### Example 2 – rotateRight(i, distance) – Negative Distance

Giving negative distance to rotateLeft() would be rotating left.

Java Program

```public class Example {
public static void main(String[] args){
int i = 1234;
int distance = -3;
int result = Integer.rotateRight(i, distance);
System.out.println("Result of rotateRight("+i+", "+distance+") = " + result);
}
}```

Output

`Result of rotateRight(1234, -3) = 9872`

### Conclusion

In this Java Tutorial, we have learnt the syntax of Java Integer.rotateRight() method, and also how to use this method with the help of Java example programs.
