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

Names space on threes... ~ above 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"?)). Friend can try itand see. Counting "1, 2, 3, ...", are you saying "one, two,three", or space you picturing "1", "2", "3"? ns say them, butsometimes practice picturing. Feynman reports the if you say them,you can read at the exact same time, however may have actually trouble talking. If youpicture them, you deserve to talk, but reading is difficult. Probably Ishould destruction up the Feynman story and also flesh this out as a page? Itwould likewise be nice to have actually a crosscheck on the concept.Notes:Doables:History: 2003-Feb-03 fixed 2 links. Included this History. Mid 1990"s Created.

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

One | 100 | 1. You are watching: What is 10 to the 11th power | "ten come 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 to the four" |

hundred thousand | 105 | 100,000. | "ten come 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 come 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 come the eleven" |

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

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

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

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