Enter a hexadecimal number.
RESULT
(2A.9)_{16} = (52.44)_{8}
DESCRIPTIONS
We can convert a hexadecimal number to octal in two steps.
STEP 1-HEXADECIMAL TO BINARY
In the first step, we convert the hexadecimal number to binary.
To convert a hexadecimal number to binary, we write 4 bit binary equivalent of each hexadecimal digit in the same order.
(2A.9)_{16} = (00101010.1001)_{2}
STEP 2-BINARY TO OCTAL
In the second step, we convert the binary number to octal.
Starting from the binary point, we partition the binary number into groups of 3 bits. In the whole number part, we proceed to the left and in the fractional part, we proceed to the right.
(00101010.1001)_{2} = (52.44)_{8}
COMBINING RESULTS
Using the equalities we obtained in steps 1 and 2, we reach the following result.
(2A.9)_{16} = (52.44)_{8}
OTHER INFORMATION
Hexadecimal to octal conversion can be accomplished in two steps.
A hexadecimal number can be converted to octal by writing the binary equivalent of each hexadecimal digit in the same order.
Converting the binary number obtained in the previous step to octal leads us to reach the overall result. A binary number can be converted to octal by partitioning the binary digits in groups of three bits.
