    Okay, not actually that interesting.

    Here’s something that is interesting though: In looking it up myself, I discovered that Billion and Trillion are not universal terms, and while in America 1 billion has 9 zeros, in the UK/ parts of EU, it has 12, and from there the number of zeros increases by 6 rather than 3. So 1 trillion in America has 12 zeros, but in Europe it has 18!

      Oh wow, what a horrible thing to not have a standard. Good job, global community!

      UK uses the USA version for million billion so 9 zeroes, at least for our national statistics.
