six hundred two septilion * * * * * No. It is, in fact six hundred two sextilion

Yes, sextillion is a real number. In short scale notation, it is equal to 1021, while in long scale notation, popular in Continental Europe and archaic English, it is equal to 1036.

1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (That's 10^21) 1,000 = 1 thousand 1,000,000 = 1 million 1,000,000,000 = 1 billion 1,000,000,000,000 = 1 trillion 1,000,000,000,000,000 = 1 quadrillion 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 = 1 quintillion 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 = 1 sextillion Now I am quite sure you are in middle school and didn't believe this was really a number. But it is. And there are many more like it, but not with names that are so intriguing. Cheers!

The odds are... remote. This is a factorial problem to calculate the answer you take how many options the first "dealt" card has of being. In this case the first card has a 1-in-52 chance of being the Ace of Spades (the "highest" card in a deck.) The next card has a 1-in-51 chance of being the Two of Spades, and so on. You calculate the odds of this happening my multiplying 52 by 51. So, the odds are 52 times 51 times 50 times 49 times 48 times... yadda yadda yadda until you get to one. The answer? The odd of taking a shuffled deck of cards, reshuffling it, and the dealing the cards back in the correct order are 1 in 806,581,751,709,439x10 to the 54th power. (septendecillion.) Or 80 unvigintillion. (80 followed by 66 zeroes). For the sake of comparison, conservative estimates put the number of stars in our galaxy at 100 Billion (100 followed by 9 zeroes) and the number of galaxies in the universe at the same number, making the number of potential stars in the universe at 10 sextilion (a 10 followed by 21 zeroes.)

1000 or 1024 When referring to ACTUAL SPACE on a storage device or in memory, each "unit" is 1024 of the previous unit. 1024 bytes = kilobyte 1024 kilobytes = megabyte 1024 megabytes = gigabyte 1024 gigabytes = terabyte etc. When selling storage devices (such as CDs or USB drives), the packaging will use a 1000 rule (same as above, but with 1000 instead of 1024), thus giving the appearance of having slightly more capacity. This is considered acceptable because in standard english, the prefixes kilo-, mega-, giga-, use the "1000 rule." Computers use 1024 because it is the perfect power of 2 closest to 1000. Using a power of 2 is important because computers are binary (base 2) systems. To help make this difference less ambiguous, a new set of prefixes was proposed to represent powers of 1024 (rather than 1000). They are kibi-, mebi-, gibi-, tebi-, etc.
