Solution
From the given information, . Since , , and have to be positive, . Since we need to minimize the value of , we want to minimize , so we have . Then we know , and we can see the only solution is , . Finally, , so our answer is .

Solution 2 (Official MAA)
The conditions of the problem imply that , so . The maximum digit in base eight is and because , it must be that is or When , it follows that , which implies that . Then must be or If , then is not an integer, and if , then , so . Thus , and . The number also satisfies the conditions of the problem, but is the least such number.
