If anyone has had experience reading fiscal reports, or anything of the like you’ll know that figures tend to be abbreviated. That’s usually because it takes up a lot of space to write out all those zeros. Generally, the company will write out something like: (Thousand Dollars) — 3,000…and if you multiply those two together, you get $3,000,000.
Nintendo had to do something like that in their report. Specifically with their net sales numbers. Instead of abbreviating with a thousand dollars it was with ‘millions’ of yen. The equation reads like this: (Million Yen) — 1,838,622…Ok, all you math scholars out there, what does that equal to?
1.838 Trillion Yen (bold for emphasis)
