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

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

## Notes...

Some civilization count by `talking" the numbers, others by `seeing" them.(Source: Feynman"s story (in "Curious Character"?)). Girlfriend can try itand see. Count "1, 2, 3, ...", space you saying "one, two,three", or space you picturing "1", "2", "3"? i say them, butsometimes exercise picturing. Feynman reports the if you speak them,you can read in ~ the exact same time, yet may have trouble talking. If youpicture them, you can talk, however reading is difficult. Perhaps Ishould destruction up the Feynman story and flesh this out as a page? Itwould also be nice to have actually a crosscheck on the concept.Notes:Doables:History: 2003-Feb-03 resolved 2 links.

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

One | 100 | 1. You are watching: What is 10 to the 14th power | "ten come the zero" |

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

hundred | 102 | 100. | "ten to 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 to 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 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 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 room a couple of more names ~ "trillion", however they are practically never used.## Links
