# Large Numbers

From Bacterial Takeover

Many of the **resources** and stats can quickly reach very large numbers, most notably **Bacteria count** and **planet population**.

By default, all numbers bigger than hundred are displayed using the abbreviations shown in the table below.

It is also possible to enable **scientific notation** in the Settings menu, which will change how the numbers are displayed in game.

## Scientific Notation

Scientific notation is a way of writing numbers that cannot be conveniently displayed using the standard decimal system.

Bacterial Takeover employs a type of scientific notation that is called the **E-notation**. The E stands for exponent and shows how many zeroes a particular number has. This makes it easy to make various calculations.
