Question: Numeric formatting not consistent - please help


I'm havig trouble getting answers to be in decimal form with a certain simple type of equation.

I'm new to Maple so I likely don't understand something basic but when I enter in numbers with decimals as the neumerator like (654321.987*123456.789)/2 I get 4.0390245740 x 10^10. Yet when I enter whole numbers like (654321*123456)/2 I get 40389926688.

I've checked the Number Format settings many times, it's set to "None".

How do I get decimals?

What am I doing wrong?
