Various kinds of notation from around the web, and the template and module to make it so. Borrowed entirely from the Realm Grinder wiki.

Glossary Edit

  • Short number -- Number + abbreviation, such as 9 B (nine billion) or 3.5 Qa (3.5 quadrillion).
  • Engineering -- "Engineering notation is a version of scientific notation in which the exponent of ten must be divisible by three (i.e., they are powers of a thousand, but written as, for example, $ 10^6 $ instead of $ 1000^2 $)."

Details Edit

The two items in this wiki to look to:

  1. Module:NumberFormat
  2. Template:NumberInline

The first converts the number provided in the second from style1 to style2, where the styles are scientific format and letter format. For example:

{{NumberInline|50 Qa}}


50 Qa (5E16)




14 T (1.45E13)

Differences Edit

Different games use different short number notation. For example:

Scientific Notation Realm Grinder Idle Bouncer
7.02e+80 702 Qivg 702 QtVi

This can be changed within the module.

Further examples Edit

To perform, add this "template":

{{#invoke: NumberFormat | <<style>> | <<number>> }}
Invokation Result
Inline 10 M (1E7)
Scientific 1E7
Engineering 10E6
ShortScale 10 M
Debug 1: 10,000,000 (string, 1, 7)
