Reader comment on: Ban The Word 'Trillion'
Submitted by Lyle (United States), Jun 26, 2012 23:38
People ought to learn something anyway. Recall a million is 10**6 a billion is 10**9 a trillion is 10**12 and a quadrillion is 10**15. Or say mega, giga, tera and peta dollars to use the international suffixes. Talking about a Terabuck makes sense since people know what a terabyte is.
