How to convert octal numbers into decimal numbers manually?

Unlike using a converter, manual conversion is a hectic task as you have to perform a lot of calculations.

Consider an example:

We have an octal number: 2348

Now we have to convert it into decimal, we will multiply each digit by 8 while reducing the power of 8 according to the position of the number.

2348 = 2*82+3*81+4*80 = 2*64+24+4 = 128+24+4 = 156

15610 is our required decimal number.

As the result of both is the same, so we conclude that our tool is the best way to convert octal numbers into decimal because it saves your time.

Octal number system and its use:

Octal numbers are known as base-8 numbers comprising of 8 digits from 0-7. Each number has a weightage of 8 that implies that each preceding digit is eight times powerful than the previous one.

When converted to binary each octal number is represented in the form of three. For example, if we convert 348 into binary, we will write 0111002 in binary form. Because 38 = 0112 and 4­8 = 1002.

Octal numbers had been extensively used in computing till the advent of the hexadecimal number system. As you know, computers understand binary language, so octal numbers were an easy way to convert them into binary for it needs fewer calculations as compared to other number systems.

At a certain time, the CPU used 26 and 36 bits for calculations therefore it was easy for computers to use an octal number system.

In the aviation industry, these numbers are used to direct ground radars system about airplane identification and air pressure. Transponders use them as 4 digits octal numbers.

These 0 to 7 octal numbers are used for file permissions of your website hosted on pair networks in the Linux operating system.

Decimal number system and its use:

The decimal number system is known as the base-10 number system comprising 10 digits starting from 0-9 successively.  Each digit has a significance of 10. People have been using these digits for a long time.

Fractions are denoted by points in this number system. Each position starts from left to right as units, tens hundreds, thousands, and so on.

We have been using the decimal number system from time immemorial. We can infer that it developed from its ease to count things such as we have ten fingers, so it was easy to do arithmetic.

In our daily life, we use decimal number systems in many ways such as currency, measurements, and many more.
