## What is Hex to Octal converter

To convert a hexadecimal number to octal, you can follow these steps:

1. Convert the hexadecimal number to binary.
2. Group the binary digits in sets of three starting from the rightmost digit.
3. Convert each group of three binary digits to its octal equivalent.
4. Combine the octal digits to form the resulting octal number.

Here's an example:

Let's say you want to convert the hexadecimal number "3A7" to octal.

1. Convert the hexadecimal number to binary: 3: 0011 A: 1010 7: 0111

The binary representation of "3A7" is "001110100111".

2. Group the binary digits in sets of three starting from the rightmost digit: 001 110 100 111

3. Convert each group of three binary digits to octal: 001: 1 110: 6 100: 4 111: 7

4. Combine the octal digits to form the resulting octal number: The resulting octal number is "1647".

So, the hexadecimal number "3A7" is equivalent to the octal number "1647".

You can use online converters or programming libraries to perform hexadecimal to octal conversions conveniently.

## How to convert hex to octal

Convert every hex digit (start lowest digit) to 4 binary digits, with this table:

Hex Binary
0 0000
1 0001
2 0010
3 0011

D 1101
E 1110
F 1111

Then convert every 3 binary digits from bit0 to 1 octal digit, with this table:

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

### Example

Convert hex 6C16 to octal:

6C16 = 6 C = 110 1100 = 11011002

11011002 = 1 101 100 = 1 5 4 = 1548
