Python operators can be divided into multiple categories. Two of them are – bitwise operators and logical operators. Bitwise operator performs operations on integers in binary format whereas logical operators perform operations on boolean values.

## Python AND Operator

There are two types of Python AND Operators.

**Bitwise AND Operator**: It’s denoted by`&`

and work with integers. The numbers are converted into binary format and bitwise AND operation is performed. Finally, the output is returned in the decimal format.**Logical AND Operator**: It’s denoted by`and`

and work with boolean values. The output is boolean – either`True`

or`False`

.

## Python Bitwise AND Operator Example

Let’s look at an example of bitwise and operator. We will ask the user to enter two numbers and print their binary and operation output.

```
a = int(input('Please enter an integer:\n'))
b = int(input('Please enter another integer:\n'))
print(f'{a} in binary is {str(bin(a))[2:]}')
print(f'{b} in binary is {str(bin(b))[2:]}')
print(f'Binary AND of {a} and {b} is {a&b}')
```

**Output**:

## Python Logical AND Operator Example

Let’s look at an example of logical and operator. We will ask the user to enter a single digit number and print if it’s positive or negative. If the user doesn’t enter single digit integer, then we will print it too.

```
x = int(input('Please enter a single digit integer:\n'))
if x > 0 and x < 10:
print('You entered positive single digit number')
elif x < 0 and x > -10:
print('You entered negative single digit number')
else:
print('You did not entered single digit integer')
```

**Output**:

## Summary

Python provides a lot of operators to work with different kinds of data types. Here we learned how to use Python and operators with boolean and bitwise binary integers.
