Decimal value

You can write a decimal value in a variety of ways.



There are many countries where commas (decimal point) and points are used otherwise. So you can write

123.456,57    or   123,456.57

There are calculators where you can change the display settings for point and comma. If there are many decimal digits, there are different notations possible

1,234.565.7    or    1, 2345657

If there are no digits before the comma you can write a zero or a dash, or you just skip it

0,123    is then    -,123    or    ,123

To make it clear that the decimal numeral system is being used you can indicate this with an index


Clarity is important.
