Binary to octal conversion

To convert the number from binary to octal we make groups of 3 bits starting from the decimal point (in case of fractions)  and from right most bit (in case of integers) and write the corresponding octal equivalent of those 3 bits every time.

The process of replacing the long strings of 1 & o with the shorter strings like Octal & hexadecimal equivalents is known as chunking.
