What output did you get ? What did you not understand about the output ?

Note that if you use an integer literal starting with a zero, the number is treated as being octal instead of decimal. Is that what's confusing you ?

Do you know what "the number is treated as being octal" means?

Welcome to the Ranch.

It is simple, if you convert octal value '010' to decimal then that is equivalent to 8 and that's why you are getting 8 as an output.

you have used "i=010" in your code which assigns the value 8 to the variable i,your query is how the value 8 is assigned to i.
this is how it will be converted from octal to decimal (1*8^1+0*8^0).
