number_format(round($i_Value / 1000, 1), 1)

will return the number as you want.

Here, try this:
<?php

$number = 998;

echo number_format($number/1000, 1);

?>

yodercm, 998 will become 1 rather than the required 1.0

1345 becomes RAQ:1.3 yodercm:1.3 jericotolentino:1.3
998 becomes RAQ:1.0 yodercm:1 jericotolentino:1.0
1190 becomes RAQ:1.2 yodercm:1.2 jericotolentino:1.2

<?php

$values = array(1345, 998, 1190);

foreach($values as $value) {

	echo $value, ' becomes ', 

		'RAQ:', number_format(round($value / 1000, 1), 1), ' ',

		'yodercm:', round($value / 1000, 1), ' ',

		'jericotolentino:', number_format($value / 1000, 1),

		PHP_EOL;

}
