# Moving the decimal point

I would like to have my answer expressed not in scientific notation... how would I do this? For example, instead of reporting 2.12345e5, I just want 212345

Thanks!

Can you show an example?

You should be more precise, in you case, Sage does what you want: sage: 2.12345e5 212345.000000000

Though perhaps some function does report it this way? Sometimes graphics have this, for instance.
