# Octal to Binary

The "Octal to Binary" tool is a utility used to convert numbers from octal (base-8) notation to binary (base-2) notation. The octal notation uses a set of eight digits, from 0 to 7, to represent numbers, while binary notation uses a set of two digits, 0 and 1, to represent numbers.

The process of converting octal to binary involves dividing the octal number into its individual digits and then converting each digit into its binary equivalent. The resulting binary digits are then concatenated to form the binary representation of the original octal number.

The "Octal to Binary" tool can be used to convert both integer and fractional octal numbers to binary. It accepts input in octal format and returns the equivalent binary number. The tool can be accessed through various online converters or calculators.

This conversion tool is particularly useful in computer science and programming, where the binary notation is commonly used to represent data and instructions. It is often necessary to convert numbers from one notation to another in order to perform various operations or to interface with different systems. The "Octal to Binary" tool simplifies this process and provides an easy way to convert numbers from octal to binary notation.
