When dealing with series expressed in large values, for instance billions or trillions, you can use a scientific notation for decimal precision instead of manually typing the whole number.

Let’s say you have a series that is expressed in trillions, and would like to change the range of the Y-axis scale, so that it reaches 10 trillions.

Instead of typing ‘1000000000000’ in the Display range box, you can type ‘1e12’. The Scientific E-notation is written as: ‘*x*e*y*’

(*x* times ten raised to the power of *y*).

70 000 000 can therefore be written as 7e7. It also works with decimals (e.g. 1.5e9, meaning 1,5 billions).
