# What does it mean when something says (in thousands)

I'm doing a research report, and I need to determine a companies assets. So I found their annual report online, and for the assets, it says (in thousands).

One of the rows is:

Net sales $26,234,876 How much would that be in thousands? I know the company I'm researching makes more than 26 million in sales, so 26 million would not be the correct reporting. • It means "26 million thousands". Essentially just take all those values and multiply them by$1000$. So roughly$\$26$ billion in sales. Oct 31, 2017 at 23:22
• Thats what I though, just wanted to make sure Oct 31, 2017 at 23:23

Just multiply the number by a 1000. So the answer is $$26\,234\,876 \times 1000 = 26\,234\,876\, 000.$$ This is approximately 26 billion dollars.
