DID YOU KNOW?

1 000 million is a MILLIARD or BILLION!

DID YOU ALSO KNOW?

We can write 10 as 101.

We say 10 to the power of 1

This means:

10 x 1 = 10

102 = 10 to the power of 2

= 10 x 10 = 100

103 = 10 to the power of 3

= 10 x 10 x 10 = 1 000

104 = 10 to the power of 4

= 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 = 10 000
