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

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

## Notes...

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

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

One | 100 | 1. You are watching: What is ten to the ninth power | "ten to 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 come the four" |

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

**,000,**. The names "billion" and "trillion" mean different things in differentcountries. This is the united state version. There are a couple of more names ~ "trillion", however they are virtually never used.## Links
