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

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

## Notes...

Some people count by `talking" the numbers, others by `seeing" them.(Source: Feynman"s story (in "Curious Character"?)). You can shot itand see. Counting "1, 2, 3, ...", are you speak "one, two,three", or room 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, yet may have actually trouble talking. If youpicture them, you have the right to talk, yet reading is difficult. Perhaps Ishould dig up the Feynman story and flesh this out together a page? Itwould likewise be nice to have a crosscheck top top the concept.Notes:Doables:History: 2003-Feb-03 resolved 2 links.

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

One | 100 | 1. You are watching: 10 to the power of 7 | "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 come the five" |

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

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

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

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

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

**,000,**. The name "billion" and "trillion" mean different things in differentcountries. This is the united state version. There space a few more names ~ "trillion", but they are almost never used.## Links
