Program to Convert Hexadecimal to Octal
  • Last Updated : 19 Oct, 2020

Given a Hexadecimal number, the task is to convert it into an Octal number.
Examples: 

Input: Hexadecimal = 1AC
Output: Binary = 0654
Explanation:
    Equivalent binary value of 1: 0001
    Equivalent binary value of A: 1010
    Equivalent binary value of C: 1100

    Grouping in terms of 3: 000 110 101 100

    Equivalent octal value of 000: 0
    Equivalent octal value of 110: 6
    Equivalent octal value of 101: 5
    Equivalent octal value of 100: 4

Input: Hexadecimal = 5D1F
Output: Octal = 56437

Approach: 
A hexadecimal number is a positional numeral system with a radix, or base, of 16 and uses sixteen distinct symbols.
An octal number or oct for short is the base-8 number and uses the digits 0 to 7. Octal numerals can be made from binary numerals by grouping consecutive binary digits into groups of three (starting from the right).
Steps of Conversion 

  1. Find the equivalent binary number for each digit of the given hexadecimal number. Add 0’s to the left if any of the binary equivalents is shorter than 4 bits.
  2. Separate the binary digits into groups, each containing 3 bits or digits from right to left. Add 0s to the left, if the last group contains less than 3 bits.
  3. Find the octal equivalent for each binary group.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
