the octal equivalent of decimal number (56)10 is (70)8
5610 is the given decimal number,
10 in 5610 represents the base-10 or decimal number system,
708 is the octal equivalent of the decimal 56,
8 in 708 represents the base-8 or octal number system.
Important Notes: (56)10 in Octal
The below are some of the important notes to be remembered while converting the (base-10) decimal number 56 into a (base-8) octal equivalent.
- The first remainder while performing 56 MOD-8 operation is a Least Significant Bit (LSB).
- The final remainder while performing 56 MOD-8 operation is a Most Significant Bit (MSB).
- The remainders of 56 MOD-8 operation should be written from MSB to LSB to form the octal equivalent for the given decimal number (56)10.
How-to: What is (56)10 in octal?
The below step-by-step solution shows how to convert the decimal number 56 to its equivalent octal number. Representing each remainders of 56 MOD-8 operation in octal equivalents and arranging them from MSB to LSB produces the octal equivalent of 56.Solved Example:
What is the octal equivalent of 56?
step 1 Observe the input parameters, values and what to be found:
Decimal Number = (56)10
What to be found:
What is the octal equivalent of the decimal number (56)10?
(56)10 = (?)8
step 2 Perform successive 56 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 56
|56 MOD-8||56 / 8 = 7||Remainder is 0 → LSB|
|7 MOD-8||7 / 8 = 0||Remainder is 7 → MSB|
step 3 Arrange or write the remainders of 56 MOD-8 operation from MSB to LSB produces the equivalent octal number for decimal 56:
(56)10 = (70)8
the octal equivalent of decimal 56 is (70)8.
