Display Format

The number displayed is the current value of the x register. This number will update for changes in number format and digits.

Number Format: Choose whether or not to have thousands separators or scientific number format.

When Fixed Digits is selected, digits are to the right of the decimal.
When Significant is selected, the number of digits are the total significant digits.

The following table shows how different values are shown with Digits set to 4 and Number Format set to Separators.

Value Fixed Digits = 4 Significant Digits = 4

Significant digits are typically used for Statistics and Scientific applications.

Minimum Digits 0 or MAX applies to the fractional part of the significant option. So 2.0000 would be displayed as 2 when this option is set to 0.
12 or more significant digits with 0 max digits is similar to the "ALL" number format on some calculators.
