The Namesake

No, but a googol (after which the search engine Google was named as a pun) does - a googol is 10100 which is a one followed by 100 zeros.

A googol is a 1 with a hundred zeroes behind it. We can write a googol using exponents by saying a googol is 10^100. The biggest named number that we know is googolplex, ten to the googol power, or (10)^(10^100). That's written as a one followed by googol zeroes. So it's basically 999 googol

Not sure of the exact date or even year but it was in the 1940s.

2 googol

A googol is 10^100. So a googol times a googol is 10^200.

googol and one, googol and two, googol and three...

There are (googol+1) of them.

Googol can be written as googol or 10^100.

The integer successor to 1 googol is "1 googol 1".

To write a googolplex down, you would have to make a one, followed by ten thousand trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, zeroes. There are no named numbers past googol plex, but you could write 'googol plex and one, googol plex and two,' and so on.

No. A googol is 10 to the 100th power (10^100). But the Latin-based named number "centillion" is much larger (10^303 short scale).The largest commonly used number is based on the googol : a googolplex is 10 to the googol power (10 to the 10^100 power)

One googol and one would be next after one googol.

A googol one, googol two, googol three, ...

A googol has 100 zeros. A googolplex has a googol of zeros. 1 googol is 10100. A googolplex is 10googol .

A googol is 1.0x10^100, or 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. So, (googol+1) or 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,001 comes after googol

Googol is defined as 10100

in my agenda at school, there is a little fact that the number centrillion, has 500 zeros. but, there is probaby a higher number out there. a googol is 1 followed by 100 zeros, but higher named number is a googolplex which is one followed by googol number of zeros - that's a lot of zeros!

1 googol = 101001 googolplex = 10googol(1 googolplex) / (1 googol) = 10(googol - 100)

1 googol = 10100 1 googolplex = 10(googol)

Since one googol equals 10100 (1 followed by 100 zeros), googol times googol equals 101000 (1 followed by 1,000 zeros).

A googol is 1 * 10^100. a googol times a googol is: 1 * 10^100 * 1 * 10^100 = 10^100 * 10^100 = 10 ^ (100 + 100) = 10^200. Therefore a googol times a googol will have 200 zeros in it.

A googol is 10^100. A googolplex is 10^googol

Googol has 33 commas.
