Octal refers to a number system that uses eight digits, zero through seven. It takes three binary digits (bits) to represent the range of 0-7.

000 = 0 001 = 1 010 = 2 011 = 3 100 = 4 101 = 5 110 = 6 111 = 7

Octal is used in some areas of computer technology where it provides a convenient way of refering to and performing aritmetic with 3-bit values. {stub}
