Binary to Octal Converter

Binary to octal converter is a tool that can transform your binary numbers (with base 2) to an octal number system (with base 8).
In the case of the binary system, we can write the numbers in the form of 0101, 1001, and 0011. The binary numbers are consists of only two digits:

While octal numbers are written in the form of 567, 1473, and 2371. These numbers can contain the following digits:

0    1    2    3    4    5    6    7

This tool has the ability to convert that binary numbers to octal numbers very easily.
This calculation is very handy in the field of computer sciences and mathematics. Many high-level languages provide the facility to do that calculation.

How to use this tool?

You can get binary to octal conversion very easily by using this tool. 

Here are the simple steps to follow:

  1. Initially, you should have a binary number or numbers, in order to compute such operation.
  2. Paste your query in the input field (make sure it is in the form of binary exactly). 
  3. Here is an example of how you can input your query in the box.
  4.  After that, click on the ‘Convert’ button and that’s it. You will get the number in the octal number system.
  5.  You can also choose to reset the process if you want to try some other examples.

How to convert Binary to Octal manually? 

Converting binary numbers to an octal number system is a little bit tricky. 
In order to do that manually, divide your input into 3-digit blocks.

For example, if you have the input 101111010101, the three-digit blocks of this query will be the following:

101    111    010    101

After dividing them into blocks, you can consult with the binary to octal chart as shown below:

Binary Octal
000 0
001 1
010 2
011 3
100 4
101 5
110 6
111 7

 

With the help of this conversion table, you can put back the value of each block.

So, replace each block of binary digits with its matching value from the table.
By putting the values, we will get the following results:

101    111    010    101 = 5    7    2    5 

In the end, the answer to our query will be 5725.

As you can see, the process of converting binary to octal numeric values is a bit tricky.
So, you can save your lot of time by converting binary to a decimal using this free tool.
