U.K. Values of Very Large Numbers, Millions, Billions, Trillions, Quadrillions

NUMBER VALUES – U.K.

We all know we want to be millionaires but exactly how much is that? and how much more would I need to be a trillionaire?

These days we often hear huge numbers banded about, usually during discussions about debt but just how much money does this represent?

The following chart shows how each number is written and how much each term represents.  Surprisingly these terms can represent different values in other parts of the world.

Million

1,000,000

Thousand x Thousand

Billion

1,000,000,000

Thousand Million (USA) and of late in the U.K.
