    Who needs all the extra forms of 'illions' when you can go all the way with the term 'googolplex'... 
    A googolplex is "ten raised to the power of one googol" me, there is a lot of zeros involved here. 
    Happy formulating...   Thankfully, I haven't had to use this type of complex math, as my current lifestyle doesn't call for it.  wink

    Lady E - Take the easy way out. Instead of remembering all those different "illions", just do as I do and use the word, gazillion.
    It works for me.

    Reminds me of a joke:

    Don Rumsfeld walks into the Oval office to report on the war on terrorism. As part of the report, he mentions that three Brazilian soldiers were killed in Iraq. W replies,
    "Oh, that's terrible! How'm I gonna 'splain that to th' 'Merican people!? How're we gonna replace 'em? Are we gonna hafta reinstate th' draft?.....An' exactly how many is a Brazilian, anyway?"

    Should I add new -illions- like quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000) or five sets of 3 zeros, next will be quintellion (if I'm not mistaken). Mostly, Math terms have Greek word affixes or prefixes (because of Phytagoras and other ancient mathematicians from Greece or Europe).  Please follow this link:
