### Multiplying octal numbers

If you want to learn how to multiply octal numbers then it will require practice and persistence. While similar to decimal multiplication, octal multiplication can be trickier to understand given that octal only has 8 digits. This means that you have to carry digits differently to what you are used to when the place value exceeds 7.

### Steps to multiply octal numbers

Write the numbers just like you would when multiplying decimal numbers, aligning them so that they are aligned by their least significant digit (rightmost).
Multiply each place column together digit by digit moving from right to left.
If the result of the product in a certain place value is 8 or more then add 1 to the next place value (column) and subtract 8 from the result of the current column.
Once complete for all columns you can sum the results as you would in decimal multiplication.
You can double check your work with the above calculator.
