10

^{6}= million

10

^{12}= billion

10

^{24}= trillion

You can determine the name of the number by expressing it as 10

^{6n}where

*n*equals

*n*-lion. And in reverse, understanding what a trillion is in long scale is simple because tri- equals 3, and 10

^{6(3)}equals 10

^{24}.

But when we look at short scale (US/English) number names:

10

^{6}million

10

^{9}= billion

10

^{12}= trillion

10

^{15}= quad

10

^{18}= quint, etc.

...what simple equation could we use to express this naming convention, where

*n*is the only variable and equals

*n*-lion?
