We convert decimal to octal in the same way we convert decimal to binary. We can use the division method with the root of 8 and reverse the numbers at the end. We start with the decimal number and divide iteratively by eight and keep the remainders. For example, for the decimal number 112:

Division by 8 | Remainder |
---|---|

112 / 8 = 14 | 0 |

14 / 8 = 1 | 6 |

1 / 8 = 0 | 1 |

For the fraction, we multiply 1/8 x 8 to get 1.

Read from bottom to top and calculate the new octal number 0o160. As a check, we notice our decimal number was even, as is our octal number.
