"thousands of millions" is sort of an odd way to say "billions". i do not believe that it is proper grammar, but more like slang. i think that it would be referred to as a "colloquialism".

the word is spelled "galaxies", not "galaxias". this is just referred to as a mis-spelling.

the comma is incorrect punctuation, i believe. it should instead be a hyphen..

the phrase "each one" is a redundancy, the word "each", by itself, would suffice.

the sentence would be much improved if it read as follows: "billions of galaxies exist- each with billions of stars".

What is 247,039 rounded to the nearest thousand


Step 1 - identify the thousands column.
Step 2 - look to the number immediately to the right of this column
Step 3 - if 5 or over, add 1 to the thousands column
Step 4 - if 4 or less, don't add 1 to the thousands column.
Step 5 - set all numbers to the right of the thousands column to 0.

In this case, the thousands column is the 7. The number immediately to the right is 0, so we don't add 1 to the 7. We set all numbers to the right of the 7 to 0.

I get 247,000

Good luck.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I must enter or register to have a chance at winning with my initials ns. Not for thousands or millions but for $100.00.

Please don't answer anything like that online, not for 1 dollar, not for 100 dollar not even for 10000000 dollar. It is just a scam or phishing. You lose control over your computer or worse.

How can i round to the hundreds or thousands?

Put the calculator in scientific display mode (SHIFT>MODE(Setup)>FIX. You will be asked to enter the number of fixed decimal digits. Enter 2 for hundredths, and 3 for thousandths. To round to the nearest hundreds or the nearest thousands, do it by hand as follows.
For hundreds
Locate the hundred digit. Let it be h.
If the next digit (the tens digits is less than 5 replace the 10 and unit digits each by 0. Your result will look like ...h00.
If the 10s digit is 5 or above (5, 6, 7, 8, 9) you must round up by increasing the hundreds digits by 1. Your result will look like ...(h+1)00
For thousands
Let the thousand digits be t
If the hundreds digits to its right is less than 5, replace it and the digits following it by 0. Your result will look like ...t000.
If the hundreds digit is 5 or higher, increase the thousands digits by 1 and replace the hundreds, tens, and units digits by 0. You result will end with (t+1) 000
Note if (h+1) or (t+1) give you 10, put a zero at their positions and increase the digit to the left by 1.
Example. 78997 to the nearest hundreds 78997 becomes 789(9+1)0 or 78(9+1)00 or 79000

I want to bring comma as seperator between thousands

This calculator does not have a separator for thousands, millions, etc. This feature may have seemed to the designers to be unimportant in a scientific calculator.
You can however change the decimal mark from the dot to the comma. To do that, press [SHIFT][Mode] to enter (Setup).
Press the Arrow down. In new screen look for 5:Disp.
