## Homework Statement

Convert the hexadecimal (base 16) value FACE.BE into octal (base 8), correct

to 2 octal places.

## Homework Equations

Nil

## The Attempt at a Solution

First, I've converted the FACE.BE to decimals and I got 64206.742188

Next I change them to octal

64206(dec) = 175316(oct)

However, I'm unsure with the 0.742188

I continued my solution by treating it is 742188 and got 2651454

If that's the case, my answer is 175316.27(oct).

Is this answer correct?

Any quicker way to do it like Octal to Hexadecimal without the need to convert into Decimal first.
