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

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

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

## INFORMATION

Octal to hexadecimal conversion can be accomplished in two steps.

• STEP 1: Octal to binary conversion
• STEP 1: Binary to hexadecimal conversion

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.
