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

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

## Notes...

Some civilization count through `talking" the numbers, others by `seeing" them.(Source: Feynman"s story (in "Curious Character"?)). You can try itand see. Counting "1, 2, 3, ...", space you speak "one, two,three", or space you picturing "1", "2", "3"? i say them, butsometimes exercise picturing. Feynman reports that if you speak them,you deserve to read in ~ the exact same time, but may have actually trouble talking. If youpicture them, you have the right to talk, however reading is difficult. Possibly Ishould dig up the Feynman story and also flesh this out as a page? Itwould also be nice to have actually a crosscheck on the concept.Notes:Doables:History: 2003-Feb-03 addressed 2 links. Added this History. Mid 1990"s Created.

One | 100 | 1. You are watching: What is 10 to the 12th power | "ten come the zero" |

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

hundred | 102 | 100. | "ten to the two" |

thousand | 103 | 1,000. | "ten come 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 to 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 come the nine" |

ten billion | 1010 | 10,000,000,000. | "ten to 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 to the fourteen" |

**,000,**. The names "billion" and "trillion" mean different things in differentcountries. This is the us version. There room a couple of more names after ~ "trillion", however they are almost never used.## Links
