Ten Duotrigintillion

The short scale ten duotrigintillion, is also known as a googol.

Ten duotrigintillion can be written as 10100 or
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

In 1938 some 9 year old kid decided to call ten duotrigintillion a googol for no
real good reason.
Unfortunately that is the term most commonly associated with the number.

The search engine Google is a pun or misspelling of the slang for ten duotrigintillion.

Ten duotrigintillion is of no particular significance in mathematics, nor does it have any practical uses.
