Octal to Hexadecimal Converter
Enter an octal number.
RESULT
(46.1)_{8} = (26.2)_{16}
DESCRIPTIONS
We can convert an octal number to hexadecimal in two steps.
STEP 1-OCTAL TO BINARY
In the first step, we convert the octal number to binary.
To convert an octal number to binary, we write 3 bit binary equivalent of each octal digit in the same order.
(46.1)_{8} = (100110.001)_{2}
STEP 2-BINARY TO HEXADECIMAL
In the second step, we convert the binary number to hexadecimal.
Starting from the binary point, we partition the binary number into groups of 4 bits. In the whole number part, we proceed to the left and in the fractional part, we proceed to the right.
(100110.001)_{2} = (26.2)_{16}
COMBINING RESULTS
Using the equalities we obtained in steps 1 and 2, we reach the following result.
(46.1)_{8} = (26.2)_{16}
OTHER INFORMATION
Octal to hexadecimal conversion can be accomplished in two steps.
An octal number can be converted to binary by writing the binary equivalent of each octal digit in the same order.
Converting the binary number obtained in the previous step to hexadecimal leads us to reach the overall result. A binary number can be converted to hexadecimal by partitioning the binary digits in groups of four bits.
