#### The Math / Science

Octal numbers are comprised of digits from zero to 7.  The position of the digit indicates the exponent of eight added to the value, making Octal a base 8 number system

The first value in an octal number is multiplied by 80  (1)
The second value in an octal number is multiplied by 81 (8)
The third value in an octal number is multiplied by 82 (64)
The forth value in an octal number is multiplied by 83 (512), and so on.

In this way, the Octal number of 6017 is:

7• 80 + 1• 81 + 0 • 82 + 6 • 23 = 3087 in base 10 numbers which we commonly use.
