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

Names are on threes... ~ above 3, 6, 9 (thousand, million, billion).Each

## Notes...

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

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

ten | 101 | 10. | "ten to 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 come the six" |

ten million | 107 | 10,000,000. | "ten come 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 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 names "billion" and also "trillion" mean various things in differentcountries. This is the united state version. There are a couple of more names after "trillion", but they are virtually never used.## Links
