Expanding Our Gematria Horizons | Understanding Octal Numbers Lesson +Freemason, Masonic & Worshipful Master

Octal, 8

Each multiple of 8 is worth 10.

1 = 1
2 = 2
3 = 3
4 = 4
5 = 5
6 = 6
7 = 7
8 = 10 (This is where it gets different)
9 = 11
10 = 12
11 = 13
12 = 14
13 = 15
14 = 16
15 = 17
16 = 20
The same is true until infinity....
Let's skip to '24' and count by '8'...
24 = 30
32 = 40
40 = 50
48 = 60
56 = 70
64 = 100 (In Base 8, 8 is 10) (So here it is 10x10)
72 = 110
80 = 120
88 = 130
96 = 140
104 = 150
112 = 160
120 = 170
128 = 200 (20x10)
136 = 210
144 = 220
152 = 230
160 = 240
168 = 250
176 = 260
184 = 270
192 = 300 (30x10)
200 = 310
208 = 320
*216 = 330
224 = 340
232 = 350
240 = 360
248 = 370
256 = 400 (40x10)
264 = 410
272 = 420
280 = 430
288 = 440
296 = 450
304 = 460
312 = 470
320 = 500 (50x10)

With this knowledge we can better appreciate things such as this:
Notice 147 in Octal is 223.







Notice above on our chart we made, 144 = 220

From 144 to 147, is 3 more.  From 220 to 223 is 3 more.
