# Binary to Octal

For the conversion of a binary number into an octal number system, first, need to convert it into decimal or hexadecimal then into octal. For one conversion we need another conversion, so double conversion takes double the time in manual conversion. The best and fastest way is the use of an online binary to the octal converter.

## Steps for binary to octal conversion

Follow these steps carefully for converting a binary number into an octal;

### Step 1:

Copy the binary code that octal you want.

### Step 2:

Open binary to octal converter using this link.

### Step 3:

Paste your binary code in the “Paste your content here…” text box.

### Step 4:

Click the convert button.

### Step 5:

Your code is converted and opened in another text box. Copy your octal code and use it.

## Binary and Octal Number System

A binary number system is a system of two numbers that is 0 and 1. All the numbers and characters in binary are represented in 0s and 1s. In this way, a character or number is too lengthy in binary. An octal number system has a base of 8 and it contains the 8 digits that are 0,1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7. An octal number system is used to convert the length binary numbers into smaller forms. To convert a binary number into an octal, first, we need to convert it into a decimal or hexadecimal number system then it is converted into an octal number system.

## Direct binary to octal conversion

To directly convert a binary number into an octal number system, make the binary pair of 3 words or groups and convert it into octal easily. Detailed steps are as follows;

- Make a group of 3 binary numbers. For integers, grouping starts from the right, and for fraction start from the left.
- Convert this 3-digit binary into octal numbers that are 0,1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7.

You can also check Text to HEX

### For example:

**Convert (01011011011) _{2} into octal.**

= (001 011 011 011)_{2} from left last 3-digit pair is not complete so add zero.

= (1 3 3 3)_{8}

We can again convert this octal number into binary by backtracking._{ }
