I have been trying to convert a from octal to hex and hex to octal without using binary. I believe the method is called repeated divison.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Example of problem I am trying to solve,

Convert 173 octal(123 dec) to hex

173 oct / 16 oct = 10 oct remainder 13 oct

10 oct / 16 oct = 0 oct remainder 10 oct

Reading up (1st division remainder is less sig. digit, and last is most sig.)

answer 1013 hex = 4115 dec. WRONG

answer should be 7B Hex
