Hello i have this value 171024 and i want to make it 1,710.24 i tried the number_format but cant find the combination to give 1,710.24.

The code i did is:

I followed this page: https://www.w3schools.com/php/phptryit.asp?filename=tryphp_func_string_number_format

Thank you in advance!

>Solution :

You want to format 1710.24, but you’re starting with 171024 so you need to do some arithmetic first

Convert your string to a float, then divide by 100: (float)"171024"/100

Then format the result, give it two decimal places and set the decimal and thousands separators:

echo number_format((float)"171024"/100,2,".",",");  // 1,710.24
