I'm trying to get matlab to display number in scientific notation below is the code I'm using
format longE
areaFace = 3.8e+7 displays areaFace = 38000000
Engineering format give me...
format longEng
areaFace = 3.8e+7 displays areaFace = 38.0000000000000e+006
what is going wrong?

You may refer Tips in format function documentation. It states that the Integer-valued and floating-point numbers with a maximum of 9 digits do not display in scientific notation.

Thanks, I got a replay from Matlab. That's just weird. Why does it display engineering but not scientific. I've always used scientific since forever and never eng.
