To convert a number to a currency format in JavaScript with commas, you can use a combination of JavaScript's built-in methods and some formatting logic. Here's a step-by-step approach: 1. Convert the number to a string:

``````1
2
3
4
``````
const number = 1234567.89;
const numberString = number.toString();
``````

2. Split the number string into an integer part and a decimal part:

``````1
2
3
4
5
``````
const parts = numberString.split('.');
const integerPart = parts[0];
const decimalPart = parts[1] || '';
``````

3. Insert commas in the integer part:

``````1
2
3
``````
const formattedInteger = integerPart.replace(/\B(?=(\d{3})+(?!\d))/g, ',');
``````

4. Combine the formatted integer part with the decimal part:

``````1
2
3
``````
const formattedNumber = decimalPart ? `\${formattedInteger}.\${decimalPart}` : formattedInteger;
``````

5. Add a currency symbol, if desired:

``````1
2
3
4
``````
const currencySymbol = '\$';
const formattedCurrency = `\${currencySymbol}\${formattedNumber}`;
``````

Now`formattedCurrency` will contain the number formatted as a currency with commas. Here's an example that puts it all together:

``````1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
11
12
13
14
15
``````
function formatCurrency(number, currencySymbol = '\$') {
const numberString = number.toString();
const parts = numberString.split('.');
const integerPart = parts[0];
const decimalPart = parts[1] || '';
const formattedInteger = integerPart.replace(/\B(?=(\d{3})+(?!\d))/g, ',');
const formattedNumber = decimalPart ? `\${formattedInteger}.\${decimalPart}` : formattedInteger;
const formattedCurrency = `\${currencySymbol}\${formattedNumber}`;
return formattedCurrency;
}

const amount = 1234567.89;
const formattedAmount = formatCurrency(amount);
console.log(formattedAmount); // Output: \$1,234,567.89
``````

You can customize the currency symbol by passing a different value for the`currencySymbol` parameter when calling the`formatCurrency` function.
