Quandaries and Queries


I live in Hammond, Indiana [USA}] and wonder how much is ONE MILLION TIMES ONE BILLION in the American system ???
Is it one quadrillion ? [1,000,000,000,000,000]



One million is 1,000,000, that s 1 followed by 6 zeros.
One billion is 1,000,000,000, that is one followed by 9 zeros.
Thus one million times one billion is


one followed by 9 + 6 = 15 zeros. This is one quadrillion.

For the termonology in the American system look at Billions and more! and Billions and more! and even more!
