So far it is a googol. A googol is a number with a hundred zeroes or: 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

A googolplex which has a googol zeros (a googol has 100 zeros after it) is a big one, but there is no "highest number", because you can always add one to it. Some people believe infinity is the highest number, but you can always just add one.

The largest number that has a commonly-known specific name is a googolplex, which is a 1 followed by a googol zeros, where googol is 10100 (a 1 followed by 100 zeros).

Centillion is a 1 with 303 zeros so this is the biggest.

One googol and one would be next after one googol.

No. Google is not a number, it is a search engine. Googol, however, is a number. But it is not the highest, since "googol-plus-one" is higher. Numbers go on forever. For examples of numbers bigger than googol see the attached link.

A googol. It is a 1 with 100 zeros after it.

There is no highest number. You can take any number and add one and get a bigger number.

The googol. Trumped by the googolplex.

There is no highest number; but some well known big numbers are the googol (which is 10 followed by 100 zeros) or a googolplex which is 10 followed by a googol zeros. numbers never ever stop.

The highest named number is the Googolplexian: A "1" followed by a googolplex of zeros. To understand this magnitude you need to know that a Googolplex is a "1" followed by a googol of zeros, and that at a Googol is a "1" followed by one hundred zeros. The highest number which is not defined as to magnitude is infinity.

A googolplex which has a googol zeros (a googol has 100 zeros after it) is a big one, but there is no "highest number", because you can always add one to it. Some people believe infinity is the highest number, but you can always just add one.

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!

Centillion with 1 and 303 zeros

The largest number that has a commonly-known specific name is a googolplex, which is a 1 followed by a googol zeros, where googol is 10100 (a 1 followed by 100 zeros).
