"One, ten, hundred, thousand, ten thousand, hundred thousand, million, ten million, hundred million, billion, ..."

Names space on threes... On 3, 6, 9 (thousand, million, billion).Each

## Notes...

Some people count through `talking" the numbers, others by `seeing" them.(Source: Feynman"s story (in "Curious Character"?)). Friend can try itand see. Counting "1, 2, 3, ...", room you saying "one, two,three", or room you picturing "1", "2", "3"? ns say them, butsometimes practice picturing. Feynman reports the if you to speak them,you have the right to read at the exact same time, however may have trouble talking. If youpicture them, you have the right to talk, but reading is difficult. Perhaps Ishould destruction up the Feynman story and also flesh this out as a page? Itwould additionally be nice to have a crosscheck on the concept.Notes:Doables:History: 2003-Feb-03 addressed 2 links. Added this History. Mid 1990"s Created.

thousand | 103 | 1,000. | "ten to the three" |

ten thousand | 104 | 10,000. | "ten come the four" |

hundred trillion | 1014 | 100,000,000,000,000. | "ten to the fourteen" |

**,000,**. The name "billion" and also "trillion" mean various things in differentcountries. This is the us version. There space a few more names ~ "trillion", but they are practically never used.## Links
