Assunto:  1.5 and 1,5 what is the difference?

The conventions are different. In Portuguese, we use the comma (,) to separate decimals, but, in English, they use the final point.

So we say:

- in Portuguese: 1.000,00

- in English: 1,000.00

Both meaning the same: one thousand.

It is different, but the same.
