Program for Octal to Decimal Conversion

  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 06 Jul, 2021

Given an octal number as input, we need to write a program to convert the given octal number into equivalent decimal number.

Examples:

Input : 67
Output: 55

Input : 512
Output: 330

Input : 123
Output: 83

The idea is to extract the digits of a given octal number starting from the rightmost digit and keep a variable dec_value. At the time of extracting digits from the octal number, multiply the digit with the proper base (Power of 8) and add it to the variable dec_value. In the end, the variable dec_value will store the required decimal number.

For Example: 

If the octal number is 67. 



dec_value = 6*(8^1) + 7*(8^0) = 55

The below diagram explains how to convert an octal number (123) to an equivalent decimal value:  

Below is the implementation of above idea. 

C++




// C++ program to convert octal to decimal
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to convert octal to decimal
int octalToDecimal(int n)
{
    int num = n;
    int dec_value = 0;
 
    // Initializing base value to 1, i.e 8^0
    int base = 1;
 
    int temp = num;
    while (temp) {
 
        // Extracting last digit
        int last_digit = temp % 10;
        temp = temp / 10;
 
        // Multiplying last digit with appropriate
        // base value and adding it to dec_value
        dec_value += last_digit * base;
 
        base = base * 8;
    }
 
    return dec_value;
}
 
// Driver program to test above function
int main()
{
    int num = 67;
 
    cout << octalToDecimal(num) << endl;
}

Java




// Java program to convert octal to decimal
import java.io.*;
 
class GFG {
 
    // Function to convert octal to decimal
    static int octalToDecimal(int n)
    {
        int num = n;
        int dec_value = 0;
 
        // Initializing base value to 1, i.e 8^0
        int base = 1;
 
        int temp = num;
        while (temp > 0) {
            // Extracting last digit
            int last_digit = temp % 10;
            temp = temp / 10;
 
            // Multiplying last digit with appropriate
            // base value and adding it to dec_value
            dec_value += last_digit * base;
 
            base = base * 8;
        }
        return dec_value;
    }
 
    // driver program
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        int num = 67;
        System.out.println(octalToDecimal(num));
    }
}
