Octal 'eight' my homework!

How the octal numeral system works:
The octal numeral system, or oct for short, is the base-8 number system, and uses the digits 0 to 7. Numerals can be made from binary numerals by grouping consecutive binary digits into groups of three (starting from the right). For example, the binary representation for decimal 74 is 1001010, which can be grouped into (00)1 001 010 so the octal representation is 112. Using an ASCII chart, these values can be mapped to characters and text can be stored.
It's not magic, it's just math!
