There should be at least a few people in the family...

In OCT which is Octal (Base 8) the number 31 (8 * 3 + 1) = 25 decimal.

In DEC which is Decimal (Base 10) the number 25 (2 * 10 + 5) = 25.

Therefore, OCT 31 = DEC 25.

BTW, according to Tom Lehrer "Base 8 is just like base 10, if you're missing two fingers."
