In American system - 1 million = 1,000,000 1 billion = 1,000,000,000 1 trillion = 1,000,000,000,000 In English system - 1 million = 1,000,000 1 billion = 1,000,000,000,000 1 trillion = 1000,000,000,000,000,000 In modern computer system - 1 megabyte = 1,000,000 byte 1 gigabyte = 1,000,000,000 byte 1 terabyte = 1,000,000,000,000 byte

The order is Million, billion, Trillion. Here is something from the net that may help clarify: "Another way to think of it is that a million seconds is 12 days, but a billion seconds is more than 31 years, and a trillion seconds is 300 centuries," Almost like Mil for one, bi for two and tri for three. So to break it down further it is like: million = one thousand times one thousand. billion = one million times one million. A billion = a thousand million, and a trillion is a thousand billion. So if you use the order I listed above it is higher and higher as it goes. lol

Let's see... A million has 6 zeros before a decimal point. e.g 1,000,000 A billion has 9 zeros before a decimal point. e.g 1,000,000,000 A trillion, I suppose has 12 zeros before a decimal point. e.g. 1,000,000,000,000 In this respect, a millionaire is someone who owns at least a million; a billionaire, a least a billion; and a trillionaire, at least a trillion. Those with the most zeros owns the most. So, trillionaire gets first place; billionaire, second place; and then, the millionaire takes last place. Problem solved!

If I had that much money, I would care which came first the chicken or the egg. Actually, I'm a math wiz. I'm not sure who's genes I got because neither one of my parents or brothers are good a math. Millionaire: 1,000,000 Billionaire: 1,000,000,000 Trillianaire: 1,000,000,000,000 Hope this is helpful. Best Wishes!

Me either. I don't think I want to take the time to find out. Sounds like a lot more research then I want to do. I would rather be on Mylot then researching whether the chicken or the egg came firt. Best Wishes!

Million, Billion, Trillion, and wouldn't it be nice if we had that much money? Don't feel bad I really stink at math, I only remember that becuse I used to say "a million trillion billion" and even though I had the order backwards lol I still remembered the correct way.

Oh, the most is trillion. I am also not good at math. perhaps I would be good at it if I would spend time and effort. But I really don't like it that's why I just don't bother. But the results not liking it wasn't goo. I took the board exams for teachers and failed. I only got 71.40. I just had to read all the math questions and just chose whatever answers I feel is best. Haha. Well, anyway, I guess teaching just isn't for me. I just complied to what my family wants me to try on.But I graduated AB English. I am just more into language.
