# Convert Decimal 62 to Octal

(62)10 = (?)8. Decimal 62 to octal conversion provides the detailed information on what is the octal equivalent of the decimal number (62)10 and the step-by-step work for how to convert base-10 number (62)10 into octal (base-8) equivalent manually.

__(62)10 in octal is equal to:__

62_{10} = 76_{8}

Hence,

the octal equivalent of decimal number (62)10 is (76)8

__where,__

62_{10} is the given decimal number,

10 in 62_{10} represents the base-10 or decimal number system,

76_{8} is the octal equivalent of the decimal 62,

8 in 76_{8} represents the base-8 or octal number system.

__Important Notes: (62)10 in Octal__

The below are some of the important notes to be remembered while converting the (base-10) decimal number 62 into a (base-8) octal equivalent.

- The first remainder while performing 62 MOD-8 operation is a Least Significant Bit (LSB).
- The final remainder while performing 62 MOD-8 operation is a Most Significant Bit (MSB).
- The remainders of 62 MOD-8 operation should be written from MSB to LSB to form the octal equivalent for the given decimal number (62)10.

## How-to: What is (62)10 in octal?

The below step-by-step solution shows how to convert the decimal number 62 to its equivalent octal number. Representing each remainders of 62 MOD-8 operation in octal equivalents and arranging them from MSB to LSB produces the octal equivalent of 62.

__Solved Example:__

What is the octal equivalent of 62?

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

__Input values:__

Decimal Number = (62)

_{10}

__What to be found:__

What is the octal equivalent of the decimal number (62)10?

(62)10 = (?)8

step 2 Perform successive 62 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 62__

62 MOD-8 | 62 / 8 = 7 | Remainder is 6 → LSB |

7 MOD-8 | 7 / 8 = 0 | Remainder is 7 → MSB |

step 3 Arrange or write the remainders of 62 MOD-8 operation from MSB to LSB produces the equivalent octal number for decimal 62:

= 76

(62)

_{10}= (76)

_{8}

Therefore,

the octal equivalent of decimal 62 is (76)8.
