Say B question

On Say B I received the nitpick "What happens if you input the number ten billion one (10000000001) ?" When should the coma be included, or more specifically, when should it not be included? Thanks in advance for everyone's input.

Matthew I saw a posting somwhere by Paul that the commas could be excluded. I dond know what Marilyn wants though. I did include them. I used my own comma style and did not get nitpicked on that part of my attempts.
Good luck

"ten billion, one" is acceptable. But you didn't tell us what your output was when you ran your code.

So Marilyn, are commas a requirement for the assignment?

Commas are not critical to passing this assignment.
