How octave shifts work?

An Octave designates the interval between two pitched sounds, one having twice or half the frequency of the other. The difference between the two musical pitches equals to the eight notes of a music scale (C D E F G A B C). In music notation, shifting an octave, by writing a 8 or 15 with a line above a section, enables a clearer reading.

How to shift an octave on Flat?
