# Convert any big number into short number format using PHP like 5000 to 5K, 5M, 5B etc.

In this tutorial i am going to share simple php code snippet to convert any big number into short number format. which help you to display short version of any big number as you have seen on many website they display 1000 = 1K, If you have same requirement then you can just copy below function and use in your project.

### Convert any big number into short number format

```<?php function ShortNumberFormat( \$n, \$precision = 1 ) { if (\$n < 900) { // 0 - 900 \$n_format = number_format(\$n, \$precision); \$suffix = ''; } else if (\$n < 900000) { // 0.9k-850k \$n_format = number_format(\$n / 1000, \$precision); \$suffix = 'K'; } else if (\$n < 900000000) { // 0.9m-850m \$n_format = number_format(\$n / 1000000, \$precision); \$suffix = 'M'; } else if (\$n < 900000000000) { // 0.9b-850b \$n_format = number_format(\$n / 1000000000, \$precision); \$suffix = 'B'; } else { // 0.9t+ \$n_format = number_format(\$n / 1000000000000, \$precision); \$suffix = 'T'; } // Remove unecessary zeroes after decimal. "1.0" -> "1"; "1.00" -> "1" // Intentionally does not affect partials, eg "1.50" -> "1.50" if ( \$precision > 0 ) { \$dotzero = '.' . str_repeat( '0', \$precision ); \$n_format = str_replace( \$dotzero, '', \$n_format ); } return \$n_format . \$suffix; } ?>   </php>```

Call the function and pass you big number and you can also set decimal places for short number format.

```echo ShortNumberFormat(1010); // OUTPUT: 1K echo ShortNumberFormat(1010,2); // OUTPUT: 1.01K```
