## Million vs billion vs trillion visual - NISHIOHMIYA-GOLF.COM.

Scale of numbers, deci, deca, centi, hecto etc. Numbers In the Metric system unwieldy small and large numbers can be represented using words. ie rather than saying 1000 metres or 1000 grammes you can say 1kilometre (kilo can be abbreviated to k and metre to m giving 1km) or 1kilogram (gram can be abbreviated to g giving 1kg).

The most interesting parts of the graph, and the parts where the disconnect between intuition and reality becomes clearest, are the dashed sections labeled with question marks, the one between 100 million and 1 billion, the other between 100 billion and 1 trillion. Here two competing intuitive understandings compete for dominance. On the one hand, the intuitive understanding described above.

A million is 1000 thousands, a billion is 1000 millions, and a trillion is 1000 billions. There are examples on the internet of pictures or models of these numbers in dollars or grains of rice. After reading, give each student a million dollar note (from the numeracy place value money!). Tell them they have a million dollars to spend and set.

Oh, the things you think of when you're bored. How will it go down?

One billion is equal to One thousand millions. In scientific notation, it can be written as 1 x 10 9 or 1,000,000,000 (one followed by nine zeroes). To convert billions to other units click on the required link listed below Billion to Million Billion to Trillion Billion to Lakhs Billion to Crore.

A fifteenth-century mathematician, Nicolas Chuquet, established one system by combining Latin numerical prefixes (bi-, tri-, etc.) with the suffix -illion to form powers of one million. In this system, a billion equals one million times one million (or one million squared, 10 12) and a trillion equals one million cubed (10 18).

Suns diameter is 1.392 million km. Thats 1392km x 10 6 which is 1,392km x 10 9. A average lion is 2m long. So 2m x 10 12 would be all of them in a straight line. 2km x 10 9. That means that one trillion lions are longer than the diameter of the sun. But the sun is a ball, so its much bigger. Its diameter goes into every direction, not just in one.
