Hexadecimal to octal (HEX to Octal) converter is a one-click web application that transforms values from hexadecimal to octal.

What Is Hexadecimal Number System?

Hexadecimal, also known as hex, is a base-16 numeral system, just as octal numbers. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 15 are the 16 Hexadecimal digits. The two-digit digits 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15 are sent again together with the alphabetic codes A, B, C, D, E, and F.

Describe the octal number system?

The base-8 numeral system known as Octal or Oct. The octal code is defined by a range of 0 to 7 numbers. Simply put, an octal number is any number having base 8. as in 768, 648, 328, 148, and 28.

How Can Hexadecimal Value Be Converted to Octal Value?

Since Binary Numbers are the most fundamental of all number systems, converting Hexadecimal to Octal requires first converting Hexadecimal into Binary and then Binary into Octal.

Learn Binary to Hexadecimal Conversion:

We will now learn how to translate hexadecimal into binary using an example. Consider the hexadecimal number "7AFD," for example.

To change (7AFD)16 to (?)2

hex to binary, hexadecimal to binary

Look into the calculation above. Here, we need to translate the hexadecimal value "7AFD" into binary. We know that A, F, and D are, respectively, 10, 15, and 13.

We must create a table with four cells for each hex value in order to convert from hexadecimal to binary. Here, we must create the four tables as seen in the image.

Divide all the numbers in the formula 8+4+2+1 now. By doing this, we obtain the values 4+2+1 for the number 7, 8+2 for the number 10, 8+5+2+1 for the number 15, and 8+4+1 for the number 13. Add all information to the table. For each empty cell, we shall signify "0," while the remaining cells will be denoted by "1."

The solution is (111101011111101)2, then.

We must now translate this binary value into octal in order to obtain the octal value.

Learn Binary to Octal Conversion:

binary to octal, binary to oct

Any binary integer can be converted to octal by creating a table similar to hexadecimal but with only 3 cells for 4, 2, and 1.

We need to translate the number 111101011111101 into octal. Count the digits now. Since it has 15 digits, we must create 5 tables, as seen in the image above. Create 5 sets of those digits, each of which will have 3 digits. Put each digit in its appropriate cell. Each cell will yield 7, 5, 3, and 5 to us. The solution is (75375)8.

The final response is therefore (7AFD)16 = (75375)8.
