It would be 101000000 = 10^(106), but it has no formal name.

There is no special name for that. Just write it in scientific notation, as 10100000.

A number with a 1 followed by 101 zeros is known as a "googol." This term was coined by mathematician Edward Kasner in 1938. It is often used to illustrate the concept of very large numbers and is the inspiration behind the name of the search engine "Google."

The number with a million zeros is called a googol. A googol is written as the number 1 followed by 100 zeros (10^100). It was coined by mathematician Edward Kasner in the 1930s to illustrate the concept of an extremely large number.

There is no specific name for a number followed by 23 zeros, seven and eight zeros would be ten million and hundred million respectively (6 is a million and 9 is a billion). The name for a number followed by 21 zeros is sextillion and the name for a number followed by 24 zeros is a septillion. So, for example, 7 followed by 23 zeros would be equivalent to 700 followed by 21 zeros and so would be called Seven hundred sextillion.

Some say a googol is 1 followed by 99 zeros & some say it has 100 zeros. I think it's 100. A dotrigintillion is 1 followed by 99 zeros.
