With the recent talk about the economy, we are certainly getting used to the word trillion. But, what comes after trillion. Here is a list of the BIG numbers we use in English. I got this information from Yahoo answers! If you make it to Googol, you can be proud! Pronunciation here is certainly tough and perhaps I can make an audio file for the correct pronunciation. The internet search giant Google is named after the Googol!

Billion has 9 zeros

Trillion has 12 zeros

Quadrillion has 15 zeros

Quintillion has 18 zeros

Sextillion has 21 zeros

Septillion has 24 zeros

Octillion has 27 zeros

Nonillion has 30 zeros

Decillion has 33 zeros

Undecillion has 36 zeros

Duodecillion has 39 zeros

Tredecillion has 42 zeros

Quattuordecillion has 45 zeros

Quindecillion has 48 zeros

Sexdecillion has 51 zeros

Septendecillion has 54 zeros

Octodecillion has 57 zeros

Novemdecillion has 60 zeros

Vigintillion has 63 zeros

Googol has 100 zeros.

Centillion has 303 zeros (except in Britain, where it has 600 zeros)

Googolplex has a googol of zeros

If you want some more advanced reading about science and really really big numbers try these. Don’t worry if you can’t understand. This is really advanced!
