Response to Some of your numbers are wrong
When you put 1000000000 into a SINGLE variable and then print it, it will displayed as 1E+09, which is a valid SINGLE. There are other valid SINGLE numbers which will be displayed in exponential form. They are still valid.
True, this 1000000000 number would best be displayed using a LONG or a DOUBLE, which in this case would not need to resort to exponential form.
Ted, you're right, I think we beat this issue to death.
