Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from jodie, a parent:

My son would like to know the names of digits. When counting it starts ones, tens, hundred, thousand, millions, billions, trillion...he would like to know the order of what comes next and how far we have named them..

Hi Jodie,

Surprisingly, after a million the meaning of the words is not the same in every country. In my notes Billions and more! and Billions and more! and even more! there are some names and meanings.
