Best Answer

One billion = 1,000,000,000

There are 9 zeros

Let us see:

List place value columns:


2) Tens


4) Thousands

5) Ten Thousands

6) Hundred Thousands

7) Millions ( you can not say a thousand thousands )

8) Ten Million

9) Hundred Million

10 Thousand Million

11 Ten thousand Million

12) Hundred Thousand Million

13) Billion (You can not say a million millions)

General Rule for naming place-value columns:

" You can not repeat the same denomination twice"This rule is applied after the thousands column.

For example;

"One. thousand thousands is improper, it is renamed "one million"


A BILLION MUST HAVE 12 ZEROS such: 1,ooo,ooo,ooo,ooo

"One thousand millions",proper. No need to rename it.
