In the following query, the input argument 3 has a data type of BYTEINT and a binary representation of 00000011. When this value is shifted left by two bits, the result in binary is 00001100. This value translates to a BYTEINT value of 12, which is the result returned by the query.

   SELECT SHIFTLEFT(3,2);
