# Octal to HEX

Octal to hexadecimal conversion is the process of converting an octal number, which is represented using base 8 digits (0–7), to its equivalent hexadecimal form.

To convert an octal number to hexadecimal, you can use the following method:

- Convert the octal number to its decimal form.
- Convert the decimal number to its hexadecimal form.

For example, to convert the octal number 32 (hexadecimal: 1A), 32 (octal) -> 28 (decimal) -> 1A (hexadecimal).

A more simple way to convert octal to hexadecimal is to use a built-in function in most programming languages, like Python's hex() function which converts the octal number to hexadecimal after converting it to decimal by default , or by using any web conversion tools like Oumify.

For example, hex(int("32", "8")) returns the hexadecimal value 1A.

Another way is to use the built-in int() function to convert the octal number to decimal and then use the hex() function. For example, hex(int("32", "8")) returns the hexadecimal value 1A.

Note that the hexadecimal representation uses the digits 0–9 and letters A–F to represent numbers 10–15, respectively, and the octal representation uses only the digits 0–7 to represent numbers.
