Indian names for big numbers

>



Ganitha Kerala, the Kerala School of Astronomy and Maths, has given a lot of names for big numbers.

Like the Western

Myriad = 10^4
Million = 10^6

Indian names are

Shata = 10^2
Sahasra = 10^3
Ayutha = 10^4
Laksha = 10^5
Dasa Laksha = 10^6 ( Million )
Koti = 10^7
Dasa Koti = 10^8
Vrinda = 10^9
Kharva = 10^10
Nikharva = 10^11
Mahapadma = 10^12
Mahakharva = 10^13
Padma = 10^14

In the Western, we have

Million = 1000^2
Billion = 1000^3
Trillion = 1000^4

or

Nillion = 1000^(n+1)

where n is the number. Tri meaning 3 and trillion = 1000^(3+1)!

Traveling with adventure is always being a great fun of life. Jaipur city bears sophisticated tracks of a long British rule with its well-organized aristocratic structures, including the palatial complex of Rashtrapati Bhawan and India Gate. Jaipur tour Packages is the combination of the historical and the cultural tour of India.

It's truly a wonderful and steady piece of information. I am satisfied that you basically bestowed this accommodating information to us. On the off chance that it's not all that much inconvenience stay us taught along these lines. Thankful for sharing
