Some results are in parentheses

Hello

In MathCad Prime I always got certain results in parentheses and I do not know why there is this kind of representation and what are the conditions.

Kind regards.

It appears to happen when the number is in exponent format (eg 3x10^2).  If you go to the Math Formatting tab in the Ribbon and choose Decimal instead of general the parentheses disappear.  I don't know whether there is an option to turn it off or why it's there in the first place for a simple scalar result.

Hello Stuart,

Actually that is correct, if you change the format of the result the parentheses disappear.

Kind regards.
