Binary to Octal Converter
Enter a binary number.
RESULT
(1100.11011)_{2} = (14.66)_{8}
DESCRIPTIONS
Starting from the binary point, we partition the binary number into groups of three bits.
In the integer part, we proceed to the left. To complete the leftmost group of bits, we append two zeros to the left.
In the fractional part, we proceed to the right. To complete the rightmost group of bits, we append a zero to the right.
We convert each group of binary numbers to octal and write them in the same order.
(1100.11011)_{2} = (14.66)_{8}
OTHER INFORMATION
To convert a binary number to octal we can partition the binary number into groups of three bits.
In case, we have a whole number without a binary point we start with the ones digit and proceed to the left.
In case, we have a number with a fractional part starting at the binary point, we proceed to the left in the whole part and we proceed to the right in the fractional part.
If the number of bits is less than 3 in the last group
