# how to convert decimal to octal?

Numbers with base value 10 are known as decimal Numbers. For example: (1342)10, (98)10 and so on and numbers with base 8 are called as octal numbers. For example: (1545)8 and so on
.
Let us discuss how to convert decimal to octal number. Here we will follow some steps for converting decimal number to octal number. Steps are given below.

Step 1: Take any number which has base value 10. As we know that number with base value 10 are known as decimal number. Now we will understand it with the help of an example. Suppose we have (210)10 that is in decimal form. Convert this number to octal number.

Step 2: Divide 210 by 8 then we get 26 as quotient and we get remainder value as 2.

Step 3: Divide 26 by 8 we get 3 as quotient and we get remainder value as 2.

Step 4: Divide value 3 by 8 we get 0 and reminder is 3.
So octal form of given decimal number as 322. We can also write it as:
(210)10 = (322)8,

Now we take one more decimal number to convert in octal number.
For example: (350)10 = (--)8. Convert given number into octal form?
Solution: Given decimal number is 350:
Step 1: Divide 350 by 8 we get 43 and we get remainder value as 6.
Step 2: Divide 43 by 8 we get 5 as quotient and remainder value as 3.
Step 3: Divide 5 by 8 we get 0 and remainder value as 5.
So octal number is 536. We can also write it as:
(350)10 = (536)8. Similarly we can convert any decimal number to octal number.
