Hex - Octal Converter is an online tool to perform conversion between octal & hex number systems in digital electronics & communications. The numbers & alphabets 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E & F are known as hexadecimal numbers and represented by base-16 notation. Whereas, the digits 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7 are known as octal numbers generally represented by base-8 notation. The solved example problems & conversion table may useful to understand how to do such hex - octal conversions manually. By using this converter user may find the equivalent octal or hex numbers for the hex or octal input respectively by slecting the appropriate radio button & supplying the respective inputs.

Hex to Octal Conversion

One of the easiest conversion in digital electronics & communications. Follow the below steps to perform hex to octal number conversion.

step 1: Separate the digits of the given hex number, if it contains more than 1 digit.
step 2: Find the equivalent binary number for each digit of octal number. Add 0's to the left if any of the binary equivalent is shorter than 4 bits.
step 3: Write the all groups binary numbers together, maintaining the same group.
step 4: Separate the binary digits into groups, each containing 3 bits or digits from right to left. Add 0s to the left, if the last group contains less than 3 bits.
step 5: Find the octal equivalent for each group.
step 6: Write all octal equivalent of each digit together where keeping the same order provides the octal equivalent for the given hexadecimal.

Solved Example Problem
