# Fun with Obamacare numbers

Little did Richard Feynman know when he stated: "There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers."

How many of these numbers will our grandchildren know in their lifetimes?

1,000 X 1 billion = 1 trillion (1012)
1,000 X 1 trillion = 1 quadrillion (1015)
1,000 X 1 quadrillion = 1 quintillion (1018)
1,000 X 1 quintillion = 1 sextillion (1021)
1,000 X 1 sextillion = 1 septillion (1024)
1,000 X 1 septillion = 1 octillion (1027)
1,000 X 1 octillion = 1 nonillion (1030)
1,000 X 1 nonillion = 1 decillion (1033)
1,000 X 1 decillion = 1 undecillion (1036)
1,000 X 1 undecillion = 1 duodecillion (1039)

Other very large numbers are:
One googol = 10100
One googolplex = 10googol
One googolplexian = 10googolplex
