So what comes after a quadrillian?

Why quintillion of course. ðŸ˜‰

NERD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WELL OF COURSE AFTER A QUADTRILLION COMES A QUADRILLION AND 1… WHERE DID U GO TO KINDERGARDEN U DUTS?!?!?!

Whats after a quintillion?

well thats easy a sextillion ofcourse than ofcourse septillion than octillion than nonillion, decillion, undcillion, duodecillion, tredicillion, quattuordecillion, quindecillion, sexdecillion, septendecillion, octodecillion, novemdecillion, vigintillion

also numbers with 66 -120 zeros is called an undecillion or vigintillion but with 100 zeros it is a googol. a nuimber with 303 zeros is called a centillion. der everybody knew that

OK Richard, are you sure your not a NERD? Why would someone readily know that?????lol… In hwat application of l;ife has this information come in HANDY or USEFUL for!!!!!?????

Oh by the way……..where does zillion come into play?

well gimy. a zillion is not technically a number it is used as a term as in heaps i dont know how it came about but it is not technically a number

well gimpy. a zillion is not technically a number it is used as a term as in heaps i dont know how it came about but it is not technically a number

i believe i called u gimpy last time sorry scott

I just want to know what comes after trillion!!!!!!!!

quadrillion molly

Anything after $100,000.00 is only known as a shit-load! anything over $10,000.00 is known as a grip!

grip x shitload = Hey Moe, *slap*!

So where does infinity come into all this, people say that numbers go on forever. At which point does it get to before its classed as infinity?

thousand 1,000

One GOOGOLPLEX is a ONE followed by one googol zeroes.

(you can’t write a googolplex, even in a million years)

Actually…. 1,000,000,000,001 comes after 1 trillion.

:S all of a sudden i feel extremely insuperior (i think that’s right :S) talking about a googolplex… gee i wonder why… hm… but anyways thanks for the info i asked my mum and she had no idea :S i’m doing this science project on frequency of x-rays, and it’s like 1 000 000 000 000 000 000 wavelengths per second

You guys make me so happy.

thanks 4 that info i needed 2 no 4 maths thanku

Thanks i didnt know all that and i needde to for a project thanks richard guy

one hundred: write one followed by two zeros.

-you’re welcome

There are 22,299,029,913,600,000,000 inches in a light year.

Thanx ya’ll, ya’ll helped me on a science project

Even if ya’ll do have way too much free time.

is there any number bigger then a googolplex??? there has to be at least one number bigger then a googelplex. tell me… it’s for a math debate in our class.. ðŸ™‚

how about a googolplex to the power of a googolplex ? … now thats big … ðŸ˜€

Thank “i am dumb” for the info. I needed it for a projct im doing in class. I gots me a good grade hear. Thanks again.

hehe is this st shutdown. nobody posted for like a month know.

ya’ll are all a little too nerdy for me…and i find it very hard to believe that all of these ppl had to do a project on numbers…AT THE SAME TIME!

why cant u right a googalplex in a million years if its just 100 zeros???

watch

10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

a googal / googalplex

YAh monkey–all at the same time…this conversation has been going for 7 months!

this website is called utterly boring for a reason…

you guys are really convusin my i just needed to know wat a 1000000000000000000 was for science aparently thats how many electrons are in a coulomb but my maths teach didnt even know wat it was so i went on google and found this web site cheers

crazy lovers

I like snacks.

I though this was cool…I was watching NOVA(I think) and they were talking about the edge of the universe being 13 billion light years away…so…186,000mps times 60 seconds times 60 minutes times 24 hours times 365.25 days in a year leaves us with 7,630,627,680,000,000,000,000 miles to the end of the universe…which is why I came to this web site…that is 7.63062768 sextillion miles!!!!!!!!!! Anyone care to take a Sunday drive?????

I had to find out what a googal was, and found this site. i found out a bit more. I’ll try my best not to think about it too much. my next asignment is to find out when the earth tilts it’s axis. Like when the norh and south poles swap over. Apparantly this hapens every few million years.

quote: Olly said on 02/16/04 @ 08:54 AM:

So where does infinity come into all this, people say that numbers go on forever. At which point does it get to before its classed as infinity?

Olly, I don’t remember seeing anyone answering your question, so here it is. Infinity is not a set number, simply because it goes on forever.

I mean, let’s pretend this is a possibility, but someone could claim to be the richest person on earth, because they have 1 Infinity dollars in their account. Well, they still won’t have the most money, because I could eventually have 1 Infinity +1.

So infinity is just a term used to explain a number amount that has no end.

Someone asked if there is a number bigger than a googleplex. And of course googleplex to the googleplex power, as someone said, is a valid answer. But there is a number called Graham’s Number which is the highest number to have any real earthly meaning. Look up this number on google and read an explanation. Its the upper bound to some real physics equation or something like that. At three of seventy steps into it, it is unfathomly larger than the googleplex-to-googleplex-power number. Think of THAT number to THAT power, and THAT number to THAT power, and THAT number to THAT power, and repeat this operation the last number of TIMES. Thats not the exact definition, but it will put your brain in the ballpark of what kinda number this is. And in case you dont understand how large numbers are… if you were to divide the entire universe into its smallest components, and I mean every atom broken into electrons and quarks, and even further… the amount of the most elementary particles in the entire universe is about 10^75…. ten septillion times SMALLER than a regular-old googal. BTW people have commented on where infinity starts…. within my mind it starts WAY before graham’s number.

I don’t think saying infintiy+1 is legit, they are the same number. At least as far as I have spoken with math professors and the like. Once you get to infinity it just is. Infinity is used to describe things like dividing a number in two and then dividing the results again by two and keep going with this. You can do this an INIFINTE number of times, but you can’t do it an INIFINITE number of times, and then do it once more. Of course we’re starting to touch on philosphy, but you get the idea.

If centtillion is the largest number known to man then why doesn’t it have a large like ovemnonagintillion the largest number known to man and why is the largest number named after money? I guess how ever mad up the name was looking at a coin or something.

David you wrote a google which is 10 to the 100th power (10^100) or 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

a googleplex is 10 to the google power or 10 to the 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 power.

are we bored yet?

Just a little comment from a stupid European I know, but we sort of use numbers properly over here.

Ten = 10

Hundred = 100

Thousand = 1,000

Million = 1,000,000

Billion = 1,000,000,000,000

Trillion = 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000;

and to answer the original question here

Zillion = 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

i.e. each one is the previous one squared. And though it will probably scare our American cousins, that which the USA insists is a billion (1,000,000,000) has a name all of its own in the rest of the world (who also all use the above names) – its a milliard.

THAT freaks me – how many people are there in the world? The last I ever heard of was six and a half billion. But is that the proper mathematical way (6,500,000,000,000) or what (6,500,000,000)?

You are fucking cracked out Keith… Either your tryin to confuse a lot of dumb ass americans… or your the idiot…

Anyways, some guy was talkin about light years… I could talk about this shit for hours on end… in any case…

Want a mind boggler? Know all the stars in the sky? of coarse you do, dumb ass… Well, what you see is light reflecting off of them… and they are so fucking far away… literally BILLIONS of light years away… Meaning… The light we are seeing from those stars is from so long ago… it was before our planet was created, before the ice age, before dinasours (however you spell it), before fucking cave men… Hell all those stars could be blown up, or burned out, or who the hell knows what by now… but we are still studying and seeing the same rays of light from billions of years ago…

Thats why its just good to keep it simple, and focus on the moon… Although, people do go to college for this shit…

Oh and one more thing on the subject… Think about this… Lets say one of those stars were a panet, just like earth… And we are seeing it from 1 billion years ago… and we have a strong enough microscope… we could check out whats going on, and actually be seeing the future, but then again its the past, because it happend so long ago… And lets say there was a Twin Tower bombing… 1 billion years ago… we could see that shit happening right now!

Yeh, as a lot of you say… too much time on our hands, although i don’t do much of anything and i make $123,000 a year… Well, im out all…

I came seeking knowledge and left laughing! I’m a female and dumb as a stick when it comes to advanced math, but I learned at least one thing here today — math geeks have a great sense of humor!

Nerds? Boring? Whatever! You guys have me LMAO! There’s some funny shit here. Keep it up. I’ll visit more often.

i was wondering about the number of googalplex

MathDummy – you speak the truth!

My god, I love this site

MathDummy – you speak the truth!

My god, I love this site *heart* It has been book marked. : )

Richard amazed first. I just skipped completely over Olly (I’m very dumb.. Well, not really, but I just skipped it anyway.) I laughed at ‘Simon’ and ‘jody’, Skipped ‘Erik’

Sow what are the next five number after trillion?

Here, I’ll keep it simple: One, Ten, Hundred, Thousand, Million, Billion, Trillion, Quadrillion, Quintillion, Sextillion, Septillion, Octillion, Nonillion, Decillion, Undecillion, Duodecillion, Tedecillion, Quattuordecillion, Quindecillion, Sexdecillion, Septendecillion, Novemdecillion, Vigintillion. A One followed by 303 zeros is called a Centillion. By the way KEITH WAS CORRECT. However, the scientific community generally uses th American number system, no the European system, so Earth’s (human) recorded population IS Approx. 6,500,000,000.

I have in interesting insight into the nature of infiity and thought I’d share it since a few of you were talking about it.

If the universe is infinite (in the multi-dimentional sense that string theorists bable about) , then it seems reasonable to assume that when dealing with such an infinity that anything that is possible, however statisticly improbale, will happen… Not just once but an ifinite number of times.

Just makes me think… Somewhere out there exits an infinity of burritos that are exactly 10^100000 light years wide =)

BTW, I just red mie poast and reelised that I can’t spel verie wel…

quatrillon goes after trilion think about it good…..

My brain hurts ðŸ˜€

So…….. my 5 year old son writes a number that he claims is the biggest number in the universe. I gets to thinking; what is the actual BIG number that he wrote?

It turns out to be 1 sextillion. But he got bored before I could tell him. Just as well, he is probably too smart for his own good anyway.

u guys r off da hook ma nizzle if it wasn’t 4 yall i wouldnt be getin a whole box of pizza wit pop and some cookies if it wasn’t 4 u. P.S Id like 2give a shout 2 Eric which is the one dat i got da answers from. Peace out America I luv u!

Thanks guys this was exactly what I’ve been looking for. Big thanks to Erik and “im dumb”

Mothafuckers after trillion is quadrillion so go do your math dipshit

my dick is 20 feet mothafuckers

what does the word septillion come from??

Well… I have an interesting idea… Why don’t people stop putting fould language and derogatory comments towards others on here?

And, my answer to what is the largest number… there can not be one, as infinity in one sense is one more than the largest number, but then there is always one number that can be after that.

So in essense, 1 in itself is the largest number, yet so is graham’s number.

Now, could the largest number (if there is one) be an integer, yet still be the largest number, or would that be the smallest number… or maybe the largest smallest number?

Thanks this website really helped me. I got stuck after trillion.

The question is really:

How many flies will be if you leave two of them alone in a home in one months time?

The answer is:

190,000,000,000,000,000,000

Thanks for the reading – I just wanted to tell my son an answer related to his dinner table question. My hat’s off to nerds and non-nerds alike. Suffice it to say thanks to the nth power.

gosh there’s alot of SMART peeps hur!!! Dayum_where did u guys go 2 school?!?

Wow! I was trying to help my third grader and we had no idea, after reading the mass of Jupiter, what the number was! Thx!

how much is a googol again? anything with 100 zeros?

ummm………..i may be pretty darn good at math but i am way lost……….u guys must have been to like a googol different math classes!!! lol im still confused tho. what is like a thousand zeroes called? if u could tell me i would appreciate it and be awed at the smart radiating off you! lol

ohh ya. here is a trivia ques. How many years does it take for all the planets to align in a str8 line? heeee heeee! i know the answer! it is pretty hard but just try it some time!

u duys r retards for fighting about numbers

I LOVE THIS SITE!

I WILL DONATE BLOOD TO KEEP THIS SITE GOING.

My 5 yr old asked me what came after infinity, so I googled it to see how to explain it to him. Thanks, blipadouzi for an easy answer. I may be using this site frequently, as it seems I having a budding math geek on my hands. you guys are crazy!

A googolplex is googol times a googol

if 1/3=.33 repeating,

1/3 x 3= 1

.33 repeating x .33 repeating = .99 repeating

then

.99 repeating = 1

this means the infinity is indeed a finite number and basic concepts of mathematics are learned on false pretenses

How many zeros are there in a googleplex or 10 to the googlth power?

1 google is not a number if it is 1 followed by 100 zeros

Aj’s mom, i am not a geek im just listening to geeks conversations

Ted, .33 repeating is an unexact estimate

Neek, no it’s not

how much zeros are there in googolplex?
