# Is googol the last number?

## Is googol the last number?

Googology comes from googol, the most famous, and smallest, of the really big numbers. A googol is a 1 followed by 100 zeros (or 10100 ). This is the last widely accepted name for a really big number.

## Is there anything higher than googol?

Graham’s number is mind-bendingly huge. the biggest prime number we know, which has an impressive 17,425,170 digits. And it’s bigger than the famous googol, 10100 (a 1 followed by 100 zeroes), which was defined in 1929 by American mathematician Edward Kasner and named by his nine-year-old nephew, Milton Sirotta.

How many zeros are there in googol?

100
Googol/Number of zeros

### Where did numbers end?

The sequence of natural numbers never ends, and is infinite. OK, 1/3 is a finite number (it is not infinite). There’s no reason why the 3s should ever stop: they repeat infinitely. So, when we see a number like “0.999…” (i.e. a decimal number with an infinite series of 9s), there is no end to the number of 9s.

### How many seconds have lapsed when we reach 1 googol googol?

When we reach 1 googol googol, 0.5× 10 100 × 10 100 = 0.5× 10 200 or 5x 10 199 seconds have lapsed; when we reach 1 googol googol googol, 0.5× 10 300 or 5× 10 299 seconds have lapsed; in short, as number grows bigger, counting time gets closer to the number.

What is the number a googol?

A Googol is 10 ˆ 100. That is a 1 followed by a hundred of zeroes. That is very big number. It is greater that then total number of particles that exist in the universe. (I do not know who did this calculations, but is commonly accepted)

## How many zeroes are there in a googolplex?

Now convert each powder particle into a zero. That’s how many zeroes we have in a googolplex; in comparison, a googol has only 100 zeroes behind the digit 1. Assume that we count 2 numbers in a second, then we need 500 seconds to count to 1,0

## How long would it take to complete the Googolplex?

Approximately (with a pretty good degree of approximation), it would take about a googolplex years. If you want a more precise answer, it is not hard to calculate. One googolplex = [math]10^ {10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000} [/math].
