1-44Now write out the number from MSD to LSD as shown:17_{8}The same process is used regardless of the size of the decimal number. Naturally, more divisions areneeded for larger numbers, as in the following example:Convert 264_{10} to octal:By rewriting the solution, you find that the octal equivalent of 264_{10} is as follows:410_{8}To convert a decimal fraction to octal, multiply the fraction by 8. Extract everything that appears tothe left of the radix point. The first number extracted will be the MSD and will follow the radix point. Thelast number extracted will be the LSD.Convert 0.05_{10} to octal:
