Names space on threes... ~ above 3, 6, 9 (thousand, million, billion).Each

## Notes...

Some civilization count by `talking" the numbers, rather by `seeing" them.(Source: Feynman"s story (in "Curious Character"?)). You can shot itand see. Counting "1, 2, 3, ...", room you saying "one, two,three", or are you picturing "1", "2", "3"? i say them, butsometimes exercise picturing. Feynman reports that if you say them,you deserve to read in ~ the exact same time, however may have actually trouble talking. If youpicture them, you deserve to talk, however reading is difficult. Probably Ishould dig up the Feynman story and flesh this out as a page? Itwould additionally be quite to have a crosscheck on the concept.Notes:Doables:History: 2003-Feb-03 addressed 2 links.

**,000,**. The surname "billion" and "trillion" mean various things in differentcountries. This is the united state version. There space a few more names after "trillion", yet they are virtually never used.## Links
