When companies and people write currency in America..why do we write $10 (dollars) instead of doing like Malaysia. In Malaysia the sign would say 10RM (Ringgit). This type of writing, where the sign comes after the number seems to make more sense because when you say the currency…the word comes after the number. TEN DOLLARS or TEN RINGGIT. US should change to 10$. Actually the whole world should probably change it to this format.
