Convert the decimal (base ten) number 2695 to octal form (base eight)
Help please and ty!
He said in his first post: divide by 8.
8 divides into 2695 336 times with remainder 7.
So 2695= 8(336)+ 7
8 divides into 336 42 times with remainder 0.
So 336= 8(42) and 2695= 8(8(42))+ 7
8 divides into 42 5 times with remainder 2.
So 42= 8(5)+ 2 and 2695= 8(8(8(5)+ 2)+ 7= $\displaystyle 8=5(8^3)+ 2(8^2)+ 0(8)+ 7$.
The octal form of $\displaystyle 2695_{10}$ is $\displaystyle 5207_8$.
