Count of Zero’s in Large Numbers

This is a continuation post on the term zero, In our previous post we talked about who invented zero and today we are counting the zero’s large numbers in ten, hundred and so on. We intentionally left some zero’s blank for you as an exercise. Please fill them in the comments below or if you are unable to solve it then we will update the post.

Here is a quick list of large numbers and how many zeros they have:

Ten: 10 (1 zero)

Hundred: 100 (2 zeros)

Thousand: 1000 (3 zeros)

Ten thousand 10,000 (4 zeros)

Hundred thousand 100,000 (5 zeros)

Million 1,000,000 (6 zeros)

Billion 1,000,000,000 (9 zeros)

Trillion 1,000,000,000,000 (12 zeros)

Quadrillion 1,000,000,000,000,000 (15 zeros)

Quintillion 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 (18 zeros)

Sextillion 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (21 zeros)

Septillion 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (24 zeros)

Octillion 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (27 zeros)

Nonillion 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (30 zeros)

Decillion 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (33 zeros)

Fill the remaining and we will fill the final one’s..

The number Googol (termed by Milton Sirotta) has 100 zeros after it.

Then finally there is the number Googolplex, a 1 followed by a googol of zeros.

Please do the exercise left for you, although we know no one like exercises :)
