A googol is the number 10 to the power of 100 (<math>10^{100}</math>).

In other words, this number:

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

A googolplex is quite a bit bigger than this.

Note: googol should not be confused with google.


The word Googol was supposedly coined by a 5 year old. Or a grown man gone gaga
