## K \$

Hello.

If I express 102.200,00 \$ as 102,2 K \$, would it be correct (=will it be the same)?

Thank you.

I need to express the number in a short form.
If I write 102,2 K \$, will it be the same as 102.200,00 \$?

Yes, I did.
But in Europe most people (I mean people I faced with) tend to write as follows: 102.200,00 \$.

English-speaking places use commas for thousands separators and decimal points for decimals. We put the currency symbol to the left of the number without a space. We don't put a space between a numeral and a power indicator like K or M.

Following these rules, you can write \$102.2K. Even in places where the conventions are different, I think it's best to follow English-language conventions when writing in English.

In every variety of English I'm aware of, the dollar (or pound or Euro, etc.) sign is placed before the number:

\$300

Also, the thousands separator is a comma (,), and the decimal point is a period (.).

\$3,000.00 (correct)
3.000,00\$ (incorrect)
