Number Abbreviation Help

You can write your topic however you want, but you need to answer these questions:

  1. What do you want to achieve?
    Hello, Im coop and im trying to make a GUI that displays one of my leaderstats, i successfully did that, but im trying to make the numbers Abbreviated.

For example,

Not Abbreviated: 2,489,902
Abbreviated: 2.48M

  1. What is the issue?
    Ive successfully did that, but it shows as a random number through math.random…
    at first i did that as a test for the number abbreviation, but now i need to convert it into the players leaderstat.

  2. Heres My Current Code
    Local Script:

local AbbreviateNumber = require(game.ReplicatedStorage.AbbreviateNumber)

local Number = math.random(10000, 10000000)

script.Parent.Text = Number

local Text = AbbreviateNumber:Abbreviate(Number)

script.Parent.Text = Text

Module Script:

local AbbreviateNumber = {}

local Abbreviations = {
	K = 4,
	M = 7,
	B = 10,
	T = 13

function AbbreviateNumber:Abbreviate(Number)
	local Text = tostring(math.floor(Number))

	local chosenAbbreviation
	for Abbreviation, digits in pairs(Abbreviations) do
		if #Text >= digits and #Text < (digits + 3) then
			chosenAbbreviation = Abbreviation

	if chosenAbbreviation then
		local digits = Abbreviations[chosenAbbreviation]

		local Rounded = math.floor(Number / 10 ^ (digits - 2)) * 10 ^ (digits - 2)

		Text = string.format("%.2f", Rounded / 10 ^ (digits - 1)) .. chosenAbbreviation
		Text = Number
	return Text

return AbbreviateNumber
  1. What solutions have I tried so far?
    Well 1 thing ive tried is changing
local Number = math.random(10000, 10000000)


local Number = game.Players.LocalPlayer.PlayerData.Bux.Value

and that sorta worked, but when i got more bux it didnt change on the text. which thats what i need it to do, i need it to update as soon as you get more bux.

is anyone able to help?

Yep, Simply Get the leaderstats and the value, to change the text when the value is changed simply use a .Changed event, such as

simply check if the property is the value if so then re run your function and set the players cash.
