### numbers with an "E" in it

Posted:

**Fri Jun 07, 2013 4:09 am**Hi there,

does anybody know what exactly numbers with an E in it mean? Like for example: 2,55E+08.

I thought it might be the same as 2,55*10^8, but I'm not sure.

And the more important question: How can I turn that number into a normal number? I tried stuff like xy.setformat c.9/10/11. Is that the right way?

Thanks a lot for your answer!
