"One, ten, hundred, thousand, ten thousand, hundreds thousand, million, ten million, hundreds million, billion, ..."

Names space on threes... Top top 3, 6, 9 (thousand, million, billion).Each

## Notes...

Some world count by `talking" the numbers, others by `seeing" them.(Source: Feynman"s story (in "Curious Character"?)). You can shot itand see. Count "1, 2, 3, ...", space you saying "one, two,three", or are you picturing "1", "2", "3"? i say them, butsometimes practice picturing. Feynman reports the if you speak them,you deserve to read in ~ the same time, but may have trouble talking. If youpicture them, you deserve to talk, but reading is difficult. Maybe Ishould destruction up the Feynman story and flesh this out as a page? Itwould additionally be pretty to have actually a crosscheck on the concept.Notes:Doables:History: 2003-Feb-03 addressed 2 links. Added this History. Mid 1990"s Created.

Counting by powers of ten | Counting come ten billion... On your fingers "What stimulate of magnitude is ...?" game Exponential Notation |

One | 100 | 1. You are watching: 10 to the power of -9 | "ten come the zero" |

ten | 101 | 10. | "ten come the one" |

hundred | 102 | 100. | "ten come the two" |

thousand | 103 | 1,000. | "ten to the three" |

ten thousand | 104 | 10,000. | "ten to the four" |

hundred thousand | 105 | 100,000. | "ten come the five" |

million | 106 | 1,000,000. | "ten come the six" |

ten million | 107 | 10,000,000. | "ten come the seven" |

hundred million | 108 | 100,000,000. | "ten come the eight" |

billion | 109 | 1,000,000,000. | "ten come the nine" |

ten billion | 1010 | 10,000,000,000. | "ten to the ten" |

hundred billion | 1011 | 100,000,000,000. | "ten to the eleven" |

trillion | 1012 | 1,000,000,000,000. | "ten to the twelve" |

ten trillion | 1013 | 10,000,000,000,000. | "ten to the thirteen" |

hundred trillion | 1014 | 100,000,000,000,000. | "ten come the fourteen" |

**,000,**. The name "billion" and also "trillion" mean different things in differentcountries. This is the us version. There room a few more names ~ "trillion", however they are practically never used.## Links
