## Hex to Octal Converter

Hex to octal converter is a tool that is used to convert hexadecimal numbers to octal numbers.

## What is a Hexadecimal Number?

A hexadecimal number, often simply called "hex", is a numeral system based on 16. In comparison to the decimal system, which is base-10 and is what most people use in daily life, the hexadecimal system is base-16.

uses sixteen distinct symbols. The first ten are the same as the decimal system: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. After 9, instead of moving to a two-digit representation as in the decimal system, the hexadecimal system introduces letters:

- A (representing ten),
- B (representing eleven),
- C (representing twelve),
- D (representing thirteen),
- E (representing fourteen),
- F (representing fifteen).

## What is the Octal Number?

An octal number is a numeral system based on 8, meaning it operates in base-8. It uses eight distinct symbols: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7. Once you get to 8 in decimal counting, in octal, you increase the next place value and reset the current one to zero, similar to how you'd move from 9 to 10 in decimal counting.

## How to Perform Hex to Octal Conversion?

To convert a hexadecimal number to its octal representation, you don't usually convert directly. Instead, you first convert the hexadecimal number to its binary equivalent and then from binary to its octal representation.

**Example 1: **

Convert AB33 into an octal number

**Solution: **

**Step 1** Extract the number.

= AB33

**Step 2** Conversion into binary

A = 1010

B = 1011

3 = 0011

3 = 0011

The number is:

1010 1011 0011 0011

**Step 3** Grouping

101 010 110 011 001 1

These digits are not making the group of three so we’ll add two zeros on the left side and re-arrange the number.

001 010 101 100 110 011

**Step 4 **Conversion into octal

001 = 1

010 = 2

101 = 5

100 = 4

110 = 6

011 = 3

**Step 5** Combine the number.

So, the number is **125463.**
