### What is the name of the number 1 followed by 99 zeros?

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

### What do you call 1 followed by 99 zeros?

The number 1099 - that is, 1 followed by 99 zeroes, is called a Duotrigintillion in US and modern British usage, and a thousand sexdecillion in archaic British usage.

### How many zeros are in half a googol?

99. (It is 5 followed by 99 zeros)

### Is there any number bigger than Google?

Google isn't a number. The search engine Google used that name as it is a pun on Googol which is a number, and is 10&sup1;&#8304;&#8304; which is a 1 followed by 100 zeros 10&sup1;&#8304;&#8304; + 1 (a 1 followed by 99 zeros followed by another 1), 10&sup1;&#8304;&#8304; + 2 (a 1 followed by 99 zeros followed by a 2), 10&sup1;&#8304;&#8304; + 3 (a 1 followed by 99 zeros followed by a 3), ... are bigger than a googol, so yes, there are numbers bigger than a googol. A googolplex is 10^googol = 10^(10&sup1;&#8304;&#8304;) = 10^(100...0) where there are 100 zeros in the power of the 10; it is a 1 followed by a googol (ie 10&sup1;&#8304;&#8304;) zeros. In fact there are infinitely many numbers greater than a googol as the counting numbers (1, 2, 3, ...) can each be added to a googol, and there are infinitely many counting numbers.

### How many zeros will be in the standard form of the exponential expression 1O99?

I suppose you mean 1099. If you write it out, you get a 1, followed by 99 zeroes.

### How can googol be a one followed by 100 zeros if the zeros have to be in groups of three and 100 isn't evenly divided by three?

A visual answer:10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000Answer:Consider the simpler case that ten thousand is a one followed by 4 zeros. Four is no more divisible by 3 than 100 so your concern is the same. Ten thousand is 10,000 - obviously it exists, has four zeros, and obviously ten thousand is a real number. The grouping of zeros into packages of three after a number is a method of establishing the magnitude of the number more quickly. After a 1 three zeros is a thousand. six a million, nine a billion and so on. The one can be augmeneted with a zero to give us 10 (ten) or two zeros (100) to give us one hundred. So a googol can be described as either 1 followed by 100 zeros or 10 followed by 99 zeros. As counting out a hundred zeros is a pain and a source of confusion most scientific or math types would write it as 1x10100 or 10100 or 10 to the power 100 (all the same thing). Before you get worried about that zero count. 102 is a hundred (100) so the number of the exponent just indicates the number of zeros following the 1 in the written out format.
