The system used in the U.S. is not as logical as that used in other countries (like Great Britain, France, and Germany). In these other countries, a billion (bi meaning two) has twice as many zeros as a million, and a trillion (tri meaning three) has three times as many zeros as a million, etc.

The scientific community uses the American system of calculating numbers.

FYI: *TEN multiplied by itself 600 times gives the figure 1 followed by 600 zeros! This number is so large that it is almost completely beyond our ability to comprehend it!*

There are other big numbers with names. A zillion has come to mean an arbitrary or unknown large number. A googol is 10^100. A googolplex is 10^googol (10^10^10^2). This number is too large to write here without exponents. Skewes’ number (gesundheit) is 10^10^10^34 was used as an upper bound in a mathematical proof. Recently 10^10^10^10^10^7 was used in a proof.

The googolplex has given rise to the n-plex notation: n-plex is 10^n. n-minex is 10^-n. Donald Knuth invented arrow notation, where m^n (^ is an up arrow) is the regular m^n. m^^n is m^m^m^m…^m, with n up arrows. m^^^n is m^^m^^m…^^m, with n ^^s. According to *The Book of Numbers* by J.H.Conway and R.K.Guy, chained arrow notation is the following enhancement: a^^^^^b is written as a>b>5, where > is a right arrow.

Google is a play on the word googol, which was coined by Milton Sirotta, nephew of American mathematician Edward Kasner, and was popularized in the book, “Mathematics and the Imagination” by Kasner and James Newman. It refers to the number represented by the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros. Google’s use of the term reflects the company’s mission to organize the immense, seemingly infinite amount of information available on the web.

How do you write 1 googol?

ONE GOOGOL IS “10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000”

or “10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000”

I have a math question. Is saying “How Many Years Is 1 Trillion Seconds” the same as saying How many seconds are in 1 trillion years?” or is the math different?

JenBen, I’m no mathematicman but I think there is an error in your thinking. a trillion years is not the same as a trillion seconds. far from it.

How Many Years Is 1 Trillion Seconds? ANSWER 32 thousand years!! Think about how many years that is. It makes my brain hurt to think about so many years.
