#### HEXADECIMAL TO OCTAL CONVERTER (WITH STEPS) RESULT

(2A.9)16 = (52.44)8 DESCRIPTIONS

We can convert a hexadecimal number to octal in two steps. 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

## INFORMATION

Hexadecimal to octal conversion can be accomplished in two steps.

• STEP 1: Hexadecimal to binary conversion
• STEP 1: Binary to octal conversion 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.
