One googol is 10100. A googolplex is 101 googol. You could not write such a number down. It is not 10124.

Yeees... well B googleplex^graham+1 is bigger.:tongue2:


Anyone can make up numbers. Graham's number has the distinction of being the largest number ever used seriously in a mathematical equation.

How abou pi without a decimal point. I know it's pointless to engage in a "my number is bigger than yours" thing but i find it hard to resist.

"pi without a decimal point" is not a number.

So did Google get its name from this "googol" or is it the other way around. Now I see why they named their main campus at Mountain View the GooglePlex. =D

I believe that google got its name from an error in spelling. It was supposed to be gogle, but they added an extra o. But I'm not sure about this. I suppose I should google it.

I've heard the word google far too much in this thread.

Google needs to die.

I announce that red will now be a number and no longer a color. I am enthusiastic about numbers and I want more of them! :D
