Convert 130 from decimal to octal

(base 8) notation:

##### Power Test

Raise our base of 8 to a power

Start at 0 and increasing by 1 until it is >= 130

80 = 1

81 = 8

82 = 64

83 = 512 <--- Stop: This is greater than 130

Since 512 is greater than 130, we use 1 power less as our starting point which equals 2

##### Build octal notation

Work backwards from a power of 2

We start with a total sum of 0:

##### 82 = 64

The highest coefficient less than 7 we can multiply this by to stay under 130 is 2

Multiplying this coefficient by our original value, we get: 2 * 64 = 128

Add our new value to our running total, we get:
0 + 128 = 128

This is <= 130, so we assign our outside coefficient of 2 for this digit.

Our new sum becomes 128

Our octal notation is now equal to 2

##### 81 = 8

The highest coefficient less than 7 we can multiply this by to stay under 130 is 1

Multiplying this coefficient by our original value, we get: 1 * 8 = 8

Add our new value to our running total, we get:
128 + 8 = 136

This is > 130, so we assign a 0 for this digit.

Our total sum remains the same at 128

Our octal notation is now equal to 20

##### 80 = 1

The highest coefficient less than 7 we can multiply this by to stay under 130 is 2

Multiplying this coefficient by our original value, we get: 2 * 1 = 2

Add our new value to our running total, we get:
128 + 2 = 130

This = 130, so we assign our outside coefficient of 2 for this digit.

Our new sum becomes 130

Our octal notation is now equal to 202

##### Final Answer

We are done. 130 converted from decimal to octal notation equals 2028.
