What is the biggest number?
At the beginning of the twentieth century, the mathematician from the United States Kasner walked, in the park with nephews. The conversation turned to big numbers. In the course of the conversation, a discussion arose about the name of a number with one hundred zeros. It revealed, that at that time it did not exist. One of the boys came up with his own designation for this figure - googol.
The figure has no serious practical significance, but firmly entered into use. Googol is used to demonstrate the difference between an incredibly large number and the concept of infinity during training..
Soon the same mathematician proposed a name for a number with a googol of zeros.. The term was named googolplex. This figure significantly exceeds the number of elementary particles in space..
