Addition and subtraction of octal numbers are explained using different examples.
Addition of octal numbers:
Addition of octal numbers is carried out by the same principle as that of decimal or binary numbers.
An addition table for octal numbers is given below:
+  0  1  2  3  4  5  6  7 
0  0  1  2  3  4  5  6  7 
1  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  10 
2  2  3  4  5  6  7  10  11 
3  3  4  5  6  7  10  11  12 
4  4  5  6  7  10  11  12  13 
5  5  6  7  10  11  12  13  14 
6  6  7  10  11  12  13  14  15 
7  7  10  11  12  13  14  15  16 
With the help of this table addition of octal numbers is best illustrated by the following examples:
Evaluate:
(i) (162)_{8} + (537) _{8}
