Scientific notation

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

As of now i am making a project that will make my homework much easier. a calculator that i will update for each section in my class.. like before it was Quadratics and now its Scientific Notation.

First does Scientific Notation work with autoit? what i want to do is put in The Scientific Notation which would be

3.213x10^9 which equals 3,213,000,000

but i have no clue how to accomplish this.. or

4,230,000,000 which equals 4.23x10^9

I basically want to make a converter but i cant think of how..

ok i read in the help file that it was supported but dont no how to actually make it change to a number...

Help File:

Scientific notation is also supported; therefore, you could write 1.5e3 instead of 1500.

MsgBox(0, '', (3.213)*(10)^9)

Edit:

Could use this as a starting ground I guess:

Local $Multiply = '*'
Local $Power = '^'

MsgBox(0, 'Test', CalculateSum(3.213, $Multiply, 10, $Power, 9))

Func CalculateSum($f_FirstSum, $f_FactorOne , $s_SecondSum,  $f_FactorTwo, $t_ThirdSum)
    Return Execute($f_FirstSum & $f_FactorOne & $s_SecondSum & $f_FactorTwo & $t_ThirdSum)
EndFunc

Needs Beta.

sample script in the help file. play around w/ it. it takes a bit to get your head wrapped around it if you're not used to the printf style syntax.
