Decimal 250 in octal conversion provides the detailed information on what is the octal equivalent of (250)10, and the step-by-step work for how to convert the decimal (base-10) number 250 to its octal (base-8) equivalent.

**(250)10 in octal is equal to:**

(250)10 = (?)8

Perform successive MOD-8 operation for decimal 250, and mark the initial remainder as LSB and the final remainder as MSB as like the below.

MOD-8 of 250 | 250 / 8 = 31 | Remainder is 2 → LSB |

MOD-8 of 31 | 31 / 8 = 3 | Remainder is 7 |

MOD-8 of 3 | 3 / 8 = 0 | Remainder is 3 → MSB |

Arrange the remainders from MSB to LSB forms the octal equivalent of 250.
