Decimal to Octal

Decimal to Octal converter:

To convert a decimal number to an octal number, follow these steps:

Step 1: Divide the decimal number by 8 (the base of the octal number system).

Step 2: Write down the integer part of the result, which will be the first digit of the octal number.

Step 3: Take the remainder from step 1 and repeat step 1 and step 2 with the quotient.

Step 4: Continue repeating step 1 and step 2 with each quotient until the quotient is 0.

Step 5: The octal number is formed by writing the digits obtained in step 2 in reverse order.

For example, let's convert the decimal number 231 to an octal number:

Step 1: 231 ÷ 8 = 28 remainder 7 Step 2: The first digit of the octal number is 7. Step 3: 28 ÷ 8 = 3 remainder 4 Step 4: 3 ÷ 8 = 0 remainder 3 Step 5: The octal number is 347.

Therefore, the octal representation of the decimal number 231 is 347.
