I would say, numbers do not physically exist in Nature. Human construct, one of many.

"Yeah, UK's been on the slide for a while now…", you're not wrong there…to be precise, for the past 11 years…

To me it is 1,000,000,000,000…as bi means two, therefore it is two sets of a million …

For me (Dutch) the word Miljard is so normal, but I do think that it sounds better to be a Billiardaire instead of a Milliardaire :p

Los subtitulos en español: 0:19 "Creo que me enseñaron que mil millones son mil millones" cuando debería ser "un billon son mil millones"".
Al que hizo la traducción claramente no le interesó mucho el video

"somebody got it wrong and it sort of caught on" -> that's basically how all modern languages exist. French is just Latin where everybody got a lot of it wrong over time (as was Latin from its parent language), Current day English is the Anglo-saxon germanic language where mistakes accumulate over time to become old English, Middle English, Modern English (and later future English who will also have a lot of mistakes becoming the norm). There's no "right or wrong" for how a language evolves, just a set of moving conventions.

I feel like the short system makes sense in the same way that we track time, it's always 1 step out of pace.
For example: 1809 is 19th century.

Here in Indian subcontinent, we have
Hazar 1,000
Lakh 1,00,000
Karod (crores) 1,00,00,000
Arab 1,00,00,00,000
Kharab 1,00,00,00,00,000

But mostly dont use ‘arab’ & ‘kharab’ instead goes into using US billions/trillions and so on.

Spanish "million" have sense in greek terms. Thousand = Mil, Million = Millón.Also French mille and million.

Seems quite weird that the Brits would adopt something American English. Let's go back to the old system and make funny of the Americans together.

As a german, after years of being shoved into the long system, I actually really dislike it.
If I asked you to count from 1 to 10, and you started counting "1, 1.5, 2, 2.5 …" I'd call you crazy!
But the Million, Milliard, Billion, Billiard system has exactly that same kind of energy to me. It's convoluted counting.

I can appreciate the mathematical elegance that you've shown, but, as you said, it's not meant for mathematicians, it's to convert these numbers into words that are easy to grasp for a wide variety of readers.

Then wtf would 1,000,000,000 be in the long system
edit:watched like a miniute word Millard
from a american perspective I see it as the commas separate the million billion trillion etc
1
Thousand,1
Million,Thousand,1
Billion,Million,Thousand,1
Trillion,Billion,Million,Thousand,1

I am from Poland and always used the long system: million, milliard, billion, billiard, trillion etc. I couldn't believe people could count in any other way.

Is a million million a trillion

So why do we have words like "hundred" and "thousand?" Why don't we base it upon that?

Reply
Dave Crupel 27/09/2021 - 8:38 Chiều

If you want to be proper, or consistent, "million" should be "unillion" or "monillion"

Long system people can unite with imperial system people and MM-DD- YYYY people and found a new country. And they all go there and we never hear from them again…

Quite simply the long system is the original one, therefore the correct one.

as an Indian I use the short system more cuz it has more unpronounceable names if you keep ongoing

Short scale: (n)-illion = 10^[3(n+1)]
Long scale: (n)-illion = 10^(6n)

For the short system we should bring back the Milliard just for million so it should be thousand, million, milliard, billion, trillion, quadrillion and all the numbers’ names would have their meaning back if my way was used.

But then don't you have to worry about having thousand millions and thousand million billions and so on? I kinda like having 3 or less digits for describing really big numbers.
