Great topic Kip!

**Numbers of Zeros in a Million, Billion, Trillion, and More**

**Numbers Bigger Than a Trillion **The digit zero plays an important role as you count very large numbers. It helps track these multiples of 10 because the larger the number is, the more zeroes are needed.

**So this number, 240,000,000,000 which is 240 billion could be written as 2.4 X 10 to the 11th power because there are 11-#’s after the last whole number.**

Hey Mike

Referring to the above 240 billion :

I dont think that would be 2.4 x 10 to the " 11th power " would it?

Like "squared" or " cubed " would be to the 2nd power or 3rd power respectively ??

Not sure on the semantics here.

John

Need opinions here

*Referring to the above 240 billion :*

*I dont think that would be 2.4 x 10 to the " 11th power " would it?*

Thanks John!

*10 to the power of 11 = 10 ^{11} = 100,000,000,000*

Hmmm

OK
