Converts a numeric argument into a string that has been rounded to a significant figure-like number. Scientific notation output is avoided, however, and additional significant figures may be displayed for large numbers. For example, if the number of significant digits requested is 2, 123 will be displayed (rather than 120 or 1.2x10^2).
style_sigfig( x, digits = 2, scale = 1, big.mark = NULL, decimal.mark = NULL, ... )
Integer specifying the minimum number of significant digits to display
A scaling factor: x will be multiplied by scale before formatting.
Character used between every 3 digits to separate
",", except when
decimal.mark = "," when the default is a space.
The character to be used to indicate the numeric decimal point.
Other arguments passed on to
A character vector of styled numbers
Scientific notation output is avoided.
If 2 significant figures are requested, the number is rounded to no more than 2 decimal places.
For example, a number will be rounded to 2 decimals places when
abs(x) < 1,
1 decimal place when
abs(x) >= 1 & abs(x) < 10,
and to the nearest integer when
abs(x) >= 10.
Additional significant figures may be displayed for large numbers. For example, if the number of significant digits requested is 2, 123 will be displayed (rather than 120 or 1.2x10^2).
