JavaScript: Print an integer with commas as thousands separators

JavaScript Math: Exercise-39 with Solution

Write a JavaScript function to print an integer with thousands separated by commas.

Test Data:
console.log(thousands_separators(1000));
"1,000"
console.log(thousands_separators(10000.23));
"10,000.23"
console.log(thousands_separators(100000));
"100,000"

Sample Solution:

JavaScript Code:

``````// Define a function named thousands_separators that adds thousands separators to a number.
function thousands_separators(num)
{
// Convert the number to a string and split it into an array containing the integer part and the decimal part.
var num_parts = num.toString().split(".");
// Add thousands separators to the integer part using a regular expression.
num_parts[0] = num_parts[0].replace(/\B(?=(\d{3})+(?!\d))/g, ",");
// Join the integer and decimal parts back together with a period and return the result.
return num_parts.join(".");
}

// Output the result of adding thousands separators to 1000 to the console.
console.log(thousands_separators(1000));
// Output the result of adding thousands separators to 10000.23 to the console.
console.log(thousands_separators(10000.23));
// Output the result of adding thousands separators to 100000 to the console.
console.log(thousands_separators(100000));
```
```

Output:

```1,000
10,000.23
100,000
```
