I use reminder method to convert decimal numbers to hexadecimal or octal.
6512 / 8 = 814 --- reminder: 0
814 / 8 = 11 --- reminder: 6
11 / 8 = 1 --- reminder: 3
1 / 8 = 0 --- reminder:1
result: 1360
But, when i use calculator, 814 / 8 = 101.75; instead of 11. Why?
With calculator, result is 14560.

Well you have a solution. What more do you want?
We will not provide you with a step by step.

On the calculator why are you using 812 and not 814?

Mistake: 814.

The answer is not difficult to obtain; about this question; i can using calc or math app to calculate almost anything. It was difficult to obtain a solution.
Anyway, Thank you.
