### Decimal.shift()

Definition
Return the result of shifting the digits of the first operand by an amount specified by the second operand.

Syntax
Decimal(x).shift(other, context=None)

Parameters
x=Decimal
y=integer

Examples
The return are as follows:
 >>> >>> Decimal(1).shift(1)Decimal('10')>>> Decimal(1).shift(10)Decimal('10000000000')>>> Decimal(0).shift(1)Decimal('0')>>> Decimal(1).shift(0)Decimal('1')>>> Decimal(-1).shift(-1)Decimal('-0')>>> Decimal(10).shift(2)Decimal('1000')>>>

The method return with the difference in the set items:
 from decimal import Decimalset1={Decimal(0.1).to_integral_value(),Decimal(1.9).to_integral_exact(),Decimal(1.5000001).to_integral(), Decimal(10).shift(2)}set2={ Decimal(1).scaleb(0), Decimal(1).remainder_near(2),Decimal(1.0000).normalize()}print(set1.copy())>>> {Decimal('1000'), Decimal('0'), Decimal('2')}>>>

The returns are following:
