# How many digits is there in a million

## The million and above - powers of ten

Million, billion, trillion - do you know how many zeros these numbers have?

### million

The million consists of a one followed by six zeros, so "1,000,000". A million is a thousand times a thousand, i.e. a thousand squared or a thousand to the power of two. The power of ten notation is 10^{6}:

1.000.000 = 1.000 * 1.000 = 1.000^{2} = 10^{6}

As an abbreviation of million, "Mio." or "Mill." common.

As with a thousand, the numerals of the two following powers of ten become 10^{7} and 10^{8} formed as compound numerals. So 10^{7} Ten million and 10^{8} are a hundred million.

### billion

The number word billion stands for a number with a one and nine zeros, ie "1,000,000,000".

A billion stands for a thousand million or a thousand times a thousand times a thousand, i.e. a thousand to the third power: 1.000.000.000 = 1.000 * 1.000.000 = 1.000 * 1.000 * 1.000 = 1.000^{3} = 10^{9}

As an abbreviation for billion is "billion" common.

It is important to know that in the English-speaking world, especially in the USA, the term trillion is common for billions. One trillion, on the other hand, is the number 10 in German^{12}.

### trillion

In the German-speaking world, the number word Billion denotes a number with a one and twelve zeros, ie "1,000,000,000,000".

A trillion stands for a thousand billion or a million times a million, i.e. one million squared: 1.000.000.000.000 = 1.000 * 1.000.000.000 = 1.000.000 * 1.000.000 = 10^{12}

In English, especially in the US, however, one trillion stands for the number 10^{9}, the number that is called a billion in German. Caution should therefore be exercised when translating between German and English. In addition, in British English both interpretations, i.e. 10^{9} or 10^{12}, can occur.
