sniffmyhand2@yahoo.com wants to know how to use the requested format on calculators:

Actually, you can at least USE numbers in that format. Receiving displayed results in such format, I do not know. You could enter an arithmetic expression using numbers in your requested format into a graphing calculator; but I'm not sure you can obtain an evaluation value in that format.
