Large numbers and their name

In everyday life, we use numbers that are not large, such as a million, a billion, and a trillion. Although they are included in the list of large numbers, they are only the beginning of their long list. If not for the Large Numbers, the world technological progress achieved by humanity would be unimaginable.

The list of large numbers starts with small numbers to make it easier for you to understand the whole logic of the list. Usually the first number is ten, and that's where the list starts. Numbers are made up of digits. The more digits in a number, the greater its value. In mathematics, there are numbers so large that it is simply impossible to write them down by hand. For example: Googolplex, the number of zeros in it is (10+10100). One plus ten to the tenth power. This number is so great that you will not be able to write it by hand in your entire life. However, there are numbers much larger than Googolplex.

Name of large numbers

The names of large numbers are individual and are associated with their magnitude or the group of numbers to which they belong. This process has simplified the perception of their magnitude. The table has the names of the numbers, which will help you get a clear idea of their naming system.

It should be noted that in the latest technologies and astronomy, scientists have come across so much data that they have to use numbers of astronomical magnitude. That's why it became necessary to give names to large numbers to make them easier to apply. You may have never come across them, but familiarity with them will further expand your mathematical horizons.
