Hex  Octal Converter
 
 

Hex  Octal Converter is an online tool used for various applications in digital electronics to perform either hex to octal conversion or octal to hex conversion. In digital computation, the binary numbers 0's and 1's are the numeric codes to represent the decimal numbers. Hexadecimal numbers having 16 digits and ranges from 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E and F. Base 16 is used to represent hex numbers. Whereas the octal numbers are the numbers ranging from 0 to 7 and its base is represented by 8. In some applications of digital electronics the hex to octal conversion as well as the octal to hex conversion is highly required to understand operation. In order to perform the conversion select an appropriate radio button and do input. Because this calculator comprises of two converters namely hex to octal converter and octal to hex converter and these two converters have been separated by the respective radio button
Hex to Octal Conversion
The hexdecimal to octal conversion can be easily done in two steps. Convert the hexadecimal into its binary equivalent is the first step and converting the binary number to its octal number equivalent from the conversion table is the second step to accomplish the task. The below example lets you understand how to perform the hex to octal conversion
Example: Convert the Hexadecimal (B 5 A)_{16} to its octal equivalent
The equivalent octal number is (5 5 3 2)_{8}
Octal to Hex Conversion
Similarly, the octal to hex number conversion can be done by two easy steps. Convert the octal number to its binary equivalent then convert binary number to its equivalent hexadecimal number from the conversion table produces the resulting value. The following example lets you understand how to perform octal to hex conversion
Example: Convert octal number (7 5 2)_{8} to its equivalent hex number
The hex number equivalent is (1 D 9)_{8}
