Numbers in base 8, are limited to the digits 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. An octal number cannot have the digits 8 or 9.

To illustrate how a number is converted from octal to hexadecimal let us take a random number `3476_8` . Convert 3476 to base 2.

`3476_8` = 011100111110

Now take numbers from the right in sets of 4 digits

0111|0011|1110

`0111_2` = `7_16`

`0011_2` =` 3_16`

`1110_2` = `E_16`

The octal number `3476_8` is equal to `73E_16` in hexadecimal.
