3.1250e+004 ---serial

2.8606e+003---parallel

Accepted answer

e+004 means 10^4 = 10000.

3.1250e+004 = 3.1250*10^4 = 31250

2.8606e+003 = 2.8606*10^3 = 2860.6

I think time units is milliseconds.

Might just be seconds as well (i.e., parallel 47min, serial 8 hours). To display seconds, the easiest is to round (and get 2861 and 31250).
