Binary to octal & hexadecimal And Vice-versa

Binary to octal and hexadecimal:

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.

Hexadecimal and octal to binary:

To do the above we convert the digits into their corresponding binary equivalents of 3-bits and 4-bits for octal and hexadecimal numbers respectively.
