## Octal and Decimal

Octal representation of numbers uses a base-8 numeral system, employing digits from 0 to 7 to represent values. Each digit's position in the octal string corresponds to a power of 8. Octal is primarily used in computer programming, especially in older systems, though it has largely been replaced by hexadecimal and binary.

Decimal representation of numbers is the most commonly used numeral system in everyday life. It uses ten digits from 0 to 9 to represent numerical values. Each digit's position in the decimal string corresponds to a power of 10, enabling us to express numbers of varying magnitudes with ease. This system is intuitive and human-friendly, making it widely adopted for counting, calculations, and communication. Computers often convert numbers from other bases (like binary or hexadecimal) to decimal for human-readable output. Understanding decimal representation is crucial for basic arithmetic and essential in various fields, including finance, engineering, and everyday tasks.
