# Binary to Octal

## Effortlessly convert binary to octal with our free online tool.

As technology advances, the need to convert one number system to another arises. Binary to octal conversion is one such requirement, especially in computer programming. The good news is that there are many tools available to help with the conversion, and our online Binary to Octal converter tool is one of them. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore binary and octal number systems, their conversion process, and how our tool works.

## Introduction to Binary and Octal Number Systems

Binary number system has only two digits: 0 and 1, and is used in computers to store and process data. Octal number system has eight digits: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7, and is used in computer programming, networking, and telecommunications. In octal system, each digit represents a power of 8, starting from the rightmost digit. For example, the number 173 in octal system is calculated as (18^2) + (78^1) + (3*8^0) = 119 in decimal system.

## Binary to Octal Conversion

To convert a binary number to an octal number, we first divide the binary number into groups of three digits from the rightmost side. If the number of digits in the binary number is not a multiple of three, we add leading zeros to make it a multiple of three. Then, we replace each group of three digits with its equivalent octal digit, starting from the rightmost side. The following table shows the binary and octal equivalents:

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

For example, to convert the binary number 10111010 to octal, we first add a leading zero to make it a multiple of three: 010 111 010. Then, we replace each group of three digits with its octal equivalent, starting from the rightmost side: 2 7 2. Therefore, the octal equivalent of 10111010 is 272.
