# Convert Decimal 48 to Octal

(48)10 = (?)8. Decimal 48 to octal conversion provides the detailed information on what is the octal equivalent of the decimal number (48)10 and the step-by-step work for how to convert base-10 number (48)10 into octal (base-8) equivalent manually.

(48)10 in octal is equal to:
4810 = 608

Hence,
the octal equivalent of decimal number (48)10 is (60)8

where,
4810 is the given decimal number,
10 in 4810 represents the base-10 or decimal number system,
608 is the octal equivalent of the decimal 48,
8 in 608 represents the base-8 or octal number system.

Important Notes: (48)10 in Octal
The below are some of the important notes to be remembered while converting the (base-10) decimal number 48 into a (base-8) octal equivalent.

1. The first remainder while performing 48 MOD-8 operation is a Least Significant Bit (LSB).
2. The final remainder while performing 48 MOD-8 operation is a Most Significant Bit (MSB).
3. The remainders of 48 MOD-8 operation should be written from MSB to LSB to form the octal equivalent for the given decimal number (48)10.

For decimal values other than 48, use this below tool:

## How-to: What is (48)10 in octal?

The below step-by-step solution shows how to convert the decimal number 48 to its equivalent octal number. Representing each remainders of 48 MOD-8 operation in octal equivalents and arranging them from MSB to LSB produces the octal equivalent of 48.

Solved Example:
What is the octal equivalent of 48?

step 1 Observe the input parameters, values and what to be found:

Input values:
Decimal Number = (48)10

What to be found:
What is the octal equivalent of the decimal number (48)10?
(48)10 = (?)8

step 2 Perform successive 48 MOD-8 operation until the quotient becomes 0, and mark the first remainder as LSB and the final remainder as MSB as like the below:

Successive MOD-8 Operation for 48
 48 MOD-8 48 / 8 = 6 Remainder is 0 → LSB 6 MOD-8 6 / 8 = 0 Remainder is 6 → MSB

step 3 Arrange or write the remainders of 48 MOD-8 operation from MSB to LSB produces the equivalent octal number for decimal 48:
= 60
(48)10 = (60)8

Therefore,
the octal equivalent of decimal 48 is (60)8.
