#### Example

** Let us consider an example binary number (base 2) say 101101001**_{2} to convert into octal unit (base 8).

1) First divide the number into group of three digits. We get, 101|101|001

2) Now write the equivalent decimal number of each group. It is now 5 | 5 | 1

3) Hence, the equivalent octal number is 551_{8}
