Google A Number?

Recommended Posts

Thats ridiculous. Of course a googol isnt larger that infinity because infinity is a concept of a number that may never be reached...Hence...GOES ON FOREVER!There is no infinity+1...Unless of course you know what number infinity is.In which you do not because it isn't really a number, its just a concept in which to represent a number that cannot be reached.-reply by chs98203

INFINITY:Unfortunately, when you start using it as a number, you experience a few problems. You might be thinking, so why isn't it a number? Well, if it is, then it is each and every imaginable and unimaginable number, while being none of them. If you can define a number, it isn't infinity. Therefore, infinity is not a number. -reply by chs98203

Google

Google A Number?

 

Replying to LeeSUHH

Yes, google is a number. In science we were told that google is another form of infinity it just I guess, a diffrent word to use.

The name 'Google' is a play on the word 'googol,' coined by Milton Sirotta, nephew of American mathematician Edward Kasner. A 'googol' refers to the number represented by a 1 followed by 100 zeros. It's a very large number. In fact, there isn't a googol of anything in the universe -- not stars, not dust particles, not atoms. Google's use of the term reflects our mission to organize the world's immense (seemingly infinite) amount of information and make it universally accessible and useful.

I thought a googol had 100,000 zeros.. (onehundred-thousand) I wrote the number with 100,000 zeros on word and it took up 5 pages... Lol

yes google is a number

Google A Number?

 

Yes google is a number. Just a few dats ago in science we were learning about astronomy and earths rotation. So our teacher brings up that space goes on forever and one of the kids in my class asks about the number google and asks it a real number. Our teacher didnt really know the answer, well he wasnt sure. So he looked it up ans sure enough it was a number. The computer said that google was a number with one thousand zeros after the first diget. So yes google is a number.

What is a google?

Google A Number?

 

A googel is a number 1 followed by 100 zeros, a googelplex is a number 1 with a googel of zeros after it. However a googel in not bigger than infinity, due to the fact that the biggest number is a googelplex. Infinity doesn't exist, it is a fictional number designed to scare you, which big numbers should, as well as zero but we'll go into that later.

absolutely

Google A Number?

 

Replying to LeeSUHH

 

Yes, young friend,

"A google" was a hypothetical number invented by a genious, young mathematician, it was a one (1) followed by one hundred (100) zeros (0's):

 

10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

my bad

Google A Number?

 

Replying to LeeSUHH

 

My mistake! It's merely a homonym: "googol"

 

LESS AMBIGUOUSLY >>

 

Googol - a one followed by 100 zeros: 10 ^ 100 (ten TO THE POWER OF 100)

 

Google - originally a search engine, now a company bent on world domination:

 

(I.E. - googleMaps -> GoogleEarth -> GoogleStreetLevelViewCamaras will eventually turn to GoogleSurvellience, which will begin a counterCulture seeking refuge from the "Google-Big Brother"...Which will in turn create some type of enforcement to keep people from running from the surveillience, perhaps "GoogleEnforcement" ;) )

If you were to write down on paper the figure of a googol googols, there would not be enough paper nor ink nor atoms to be able to do so-reply by alex

Replying to LeeSUHHA googol can be written in conventional notation as follows:1 googol= 10100= 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000-reply by Pat Baron
