    \[999_{10}=900+90+9= 9*10^2+9*10^1+9*10^0\] \[777_8=700+70+7=7*8^2+7*8^1+7*8^0\] notice the double 0s in 700 is different meaning in base 8 as ud expect

    what you are given in that table is a multiplication table in base 8

    now we are switching to base 8, which only has digits 0,1234567

    i think you should try an easier example just do \[5_8*7_8\] in base 8
