According to the calculator that comes with Yahoo

I make it 1000000000000000  (15 zeros)

That is 10000000 (7 zeros) * 100000000 (8 zeros)

Thank you my friend. I always run out of fingers and toes (very embarrassing in shops) when I am adding up

How have you been keeping?

Yahoo, understandably, uses American usage (short scale).

According to the short scale, a billion is 10^9, and a trillion is 10^12, thus a billion trillion should be 10^21 (i.e. 1 with 21 zeroes after is), which would otherwise be known as a sextillion.

The old British usage is also known as the long scale.

According to the long scale, a billion is 10^12, and a trillion is 10^18, so a billion trillion would be 10^30 (i.e. 1 with 30 zeroes after it), which would otherwise be known as a quintillion.

Well George 30 zeros that will look more impressive. I always thought the American were the ones who needed things bigger.   Thanks

Actually, the American gallon is smaller than the British gallon as well so not everything is bigger in America [:)]

If you just want big numbers, according to http://www.unc.edu/~rowlett/units/large.html, a centillion has 303 zeroes after it in the American system, and 600 zeroes after it in the old British system.

No Hadrian.  In America it's not how big something is, it's how well you use it.[:D][;)]

The sandwich was designed to be used at the gambling table (or, was it gambling on the gee gees? I can't remember now).

Don't think the Big Mac had the same design criteria.[:)]

Well, I can't speak for all Americans, but I don't care for either place.  (I had a much better response, but it made me blush, so I deleted it.)

Hi Sharkey&george...how do you get 21.9 zeros?  Is that a zero that is almost a complete circle?  What is the degree on how you mark it?  Or is it 9/10ths of a zero...hehe
