    100st

    Hi.
    what is the meaning of "Totally 100st data were collected"?
    My mean is "st" that followed by 100.
    Thanks.

    Could you tell us what the context is? Sounds more like a trademark, or a product's name whose data have been collected...

    not a teacher...

    It is a scientific paper. The complete statement is
    "Totally 100st data were experimentally collected and were randomly divided into three groups"

    And, to be precise, is there a comma (,) following the adverb "Totally"?

    Yes. There is a comma following the adverb "Totally".

    The comma must mean "100st" can't be an adj for "data" the way "100th" or similar modifying words might be...It may refer to some material, chemical, or a product... (that's the way I got...hope there'll be more suggestions by other posters)

    I have no idea what it means. "100st" is not ordinary English. Perhaps it is a 'name' of something but, even if so, the sentence makes no sense to me.
