## How many Octal (Base 8) make 1 Decimal (Base 10)?

Measurement calculator that can be used to convert **Decimal (Base 10) to Octal (Base 8)**, among others.

# Convert Decimal (Base 10) to Octal (Base 8):

- Choose the right category from the selection list, in this case 'Numeral systems'.
- Next enter the value you want to convert. The basic operations of arithmetic: addition (+), subtraction (-), multiplication (*, x), division (/, :, ÷), exponent (^), brackets and π (pi) are all permitted at this point.
- From the selection list, choose the unit that corresponds to the value you want to convert, in this case 'Decimal (Base 10)'.
- Finally choose the unit you want the value to be converted to, in this case 'Octal (Base 8)'.
- Then, when the result appears, there is still the possibility of rounding it to a specific number of decimal places, whenever it makes sense to do so.

With this calculator, it is possible to enter the value to be converted together with the original measurement unit; for example, '762 Decimal (Base 10)'. In so doing, either the full name of the unit or its abbreviation can be used. Then, the calculator determines the category of the measurement unit of measure that is to be converted, in this case 'Numeral systems'. After that, it converts the entered value into all of the appropriate units known to it. In the resulting list, you will be sure also to find the conversion you originally sought. Alternatively, the value to be converted can be entered as follows: '36 **Decimal (Base 10) to Octal (Base 8)**' or '46 **Decimal (Base 10) into Octal (Base 8)**' or '41 **Decimal (Base 10) -> Octal (Base 8)**' or '66 **Decimal (Base 10) = Octal (Base 8)**'. For this alternative, the calculator also figures out immediately into which unit the original value is specifically to be converted. Regardless which of these possibilities one uses, it saves one the cumbersome search for the appropriate listing in long selection lists with myriad categories and countless supported units. All of that is taken over for us by the calculator and it gets the job done in a fraction of a second.

Furthermore, the calculator makes it possible to use mathematical expressions. As a result, not only can numbers be reckoned with one another, such as, for example, '(94 * 17) Decimal (Base 10)'. But different units of measurement can also be coupled with one another directly in the conversion. That could, for example, look like this: '762 Decimal (Base 10) + 2286 Octal (Base 8)' or '98mm x 73cm x 78dm = ? cm^3'. The units of measure combined in this way naturally have to fit together and make sense in the combination in question.

If a check mark has been placed next to 'Numbers in scientific notation', the answer will appear as an exponential. For example, 4.822 530 820 312 5×1025. For this form of presentation, the number will be segmented into an exponent, here 25, and the actual number, here 4.822 530 820 312 5. For devices on which the possibilities for displaying numbers are limited, such as for example, pocket calculators, one also finds the way of writing numbers as 4.822 530 820 312 5E+25. In particular, this makes very large and very small numbers easier to read. If a check mark has not been placed at this spot, then the result is given in the customary way of writing numbers. For the above example, it would then look like this: 48 225 308 203 125 000 000 000 000. Independent of the presentation of the results, the maximum precision of this calculator is 14 places. That should be precise enough for most applications.
