2. What version of Mathcad are you currently running?

 

Mathcad Prime 8.0.0.0


3. Describe the problem you are trying to solve. Please include detailed documentation such as screenshots, images or video.

 

When a long number (to the left of the decimal) is shown, without commas to separate thousands, millions, billions etc. it is easy to misread the magnitude,

 

Self evident.

 

With the use of commas, this is greatly reduced.

 

This could easily be added as an option under math formatting, results for decimal numbers.



4. What is the use case for your organization?


Would be usable where the results are in decimal form and are thousands and larger. 

5. What business value would your suggestion represent for your organization?


Makes the results easier to read and minimizes errors in reading.

Easier to read than exponential formats for non engineers or non scientist.
