C++ Program to Convert Octal to Decimal2 min read

In this tutorial, we will write a program to convert octal numbers into decimal numbers in C++. Before that, you must have knowledge of the following topics in C++.

Octal number

The octal numbers are the numbers with base 8 and use the digits 0 to 7. Example: 8 in decimal is represented as 10 in octal, 25 as 31, and so on.

Decimal Number

These are the numbers with a base of 10, which ranges from 0 to 9. These numbers are formed with the combination of 0 to 9 digits such as 24, 345, etc.

Let us go through a program for the Octal to Decimal Conversion in C++.


C++ Program to Convert Octal to Decimal Number

The program takes a user input for an octal number. And then iterate using a while loop. You can also use for loop instead of while loop, the code remains the same. Lastly, display the equivalent decimal value.

One of the libraries math functions (pow()) is used. This function returns the value of power calculation maths. It is present in math.h header file.

Output:

Enter the Octal Number: 10
Decimal Value: 8


You can also achieve the octal to decimal conversion using a function in C++. The way to do that is by creating a separate function where you pass the user entered octal value as an argument in a function.

After calculation, the function returns the decimal to the main function where the final result is displayed.

Output:

Enter an octal number: 10
Decimal value: 8
