1-64To CONVERT DECIMAL FRACTIONS, multiply the fraction by the base of the desired numbersystem. Extract those digits that move to the left of the radix point. Continue to multiply the fractionalproduct for as many places as needed. The first digit left of the radix point will be the MSD, and the lastwill be the LSD. The example to the right shows the process of converting 248.32_{10} to the octal equivalent(370.243_{8}).BINARYnumbers are converted to OCTALand HEXby the grouping method. Three binary digitsequal one octal digit; four binary digits equal one hex digit.
