Remember to use dividers when referring to large sums or phone numbers.

  • Total: $27216
  • Phone: 14XXXXXXXXX

Figure: Bad example - These numbers are unwieldy and difficult to read

  • Total: $2,721.65
  • Phone: +1 XXX XXX XXXX

Figure: Good example - Symbols or some spaces make these large numbers easier to read


For currency references, different countries use periods in place of commas and vice-versa.
E.g. In the United States and Australia: $2,367.48 / In France and Brazil: $2.367,48.
