# OCT2BIN(number, places)

• Where is the octal integer to be converted and
• is the number of characters to display the output.

OCT2BIN() function converts an octal number to its binary equivalent.

## Description

OCT2BIN(number, places)

For example,

OCT2BIN(15, 4) returns 1101

OCT2BIN(7.5,5) returns 00111

OCT2BIN(30,5.5) returns 011000

• The should be in the range '7777777000' for negative numbers to '777' for positive numbers. If it exceeds the limit, Calci gives a #NUM! error.
• If is not an integer, Calci truncates the value and uses the integer part as input.
• Calci returns an #N/A error, when the is nonnumeric.
• For a negative number, Calci ignores the places and displays a 10 bit binary output. Most significant bit is the sign bit and remaining are magnitude bits.
• argument is used to return the output with leading zeros. If argument is not used, 'Calci' uses the minimum number of characters required to display the binary output.
• If is negative, Calci ignores the places and displays a 10 bit binary output.
• If is not an integer, Calci truncates the value and uses the integer part as input.
• A number preceding with '0' (e.g. 077) should be written in text format ("077") to avoid confusion with hexadecimal numbers.
