  Large numbers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Large numbers are numbers that are significantly larger than those ordinarily used in everyday life, for instance in simple counting or in monetary transactions.
The first number is much larger than the second, due to the larger height of the power tower, and in spite of the small numbers 1.1 (however, if these numbers are made 1 or less, that greatly changes the result).
Numbers in between can be expressed with a power tower of numbers 10, with at the top a regular number, possibly in scientific notation, e.g.

 Music's interval number names explained_page 1_@TheCipher.com
Just like letters are used as names in music theory with no regard for literal alpha-numeric one-to-one correspondence [remember; seven letters (only) for twelve tones], music theory’s numbers (as they stand today) are more like generic symbols, stripped of common meaning, that have been re-purposed and reused to provide a second set of tone names.
In fact, intervals, their names and numbers, is the place in music theory where the Major scale’s influence first takes hold.
Because those numbers have nothing to do with the distances between tones they should not rightly have been called interval numbers, but they are.

Although most traditional number systems are based on the decimal numeral system, there are many regional variations, including: The decimal (base ten or occasionally denary) numeral system has ten as its base.
See also List of numbers (to be merged) There are two main English-language systems of number names: the short scale system (used in the United States, Canada and much of the English-speaking world) and the long scale system (used in most Germanic and Romance languages).

This is the Number Nine Baptist Church in Number Nine, Arkansas.
As the timber was cut and the land was cleared and converted to agriculture, the lumber mill machinery was converted to the milling of grain and the ginning of cotton.
The unverifiable story goes that the alternate name came about frivolously because there were forty four names on the petition asking for a post office, and of course the petitioners had no reason to believe that the name Piney Bridge would be rejected.

 Star Names
The oldest of all names, proper names are a mixed lot that descend from a variety of ancient (and even modern) languages that relate to the positions or the characters of the stars.
By far the greatest number, however, hundreds of proper names, descend to us from the Arabic of the middle ages, when the astronomers of the Arabia adopted the Greek constellations from Ptolemy and applied their own names to the stars, most in some way appropriate to the locations of the stars within their parent constellations.
Though the number of names is increased by applying superscripts to stars that fall near one another (a string of stars in Orion became Pi-1, Pi-2, Pi- 3 Orionis, and so on), the system was still limited to the brighter stars, faint naked-eye stars never qualifying.

 Music's interval number names explained_page 2_@TheCipher.com
For a quick introduction to the method of numbering and qualifying non-Major tones, and to confirm that said method is common to both system components (letter-names and number-names) compare these two renderings of a chromatic scale (Figure 10).
Even though our two most fundamental system components, letter and number names, share much in design and methodology their wedding, in practice, is less than harmonious.
To compensate for those ubiquitous conflicting names, a full set of number-qualifying prefix-words, whose meanings are nearly equivalent (or analogous) to the accidental marks was developed: Major, minor, perfect, augmented, and diminished.

 The Telephone EXchange Name Project   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
I had assumed that this was also true during the period when exchange names were in use, but we discovered phone numbers with 0 as the second digit (this was a phone number which was not written using an exchange name however).
Originally, the central office name was also the exchange name, and the central office was often named for the town or street where it was located.
An exchange name is a word that is used to represent the first two letters of a 7 digit telephone number (exchange names have nothing to do with area codes or country codes).

By contrast, the names of numbers in the English language (and many other European languages) include many inconsistencies and difficulties for children.
The names above are consistent with the names for the single digits 6, 7, and 8, with "ty" added.
The "teen" numbers introduce many other inconsistencies, including using "teen" instead of "ten", putting "teen" after the number part (e.g., "sixteen" instead of "teensix"), and using two non-teen names for 11 and 12.

The Cipher System’s numbers and number-formula are easy to distinguish from music’s standard number-formula; The Cipher System’s formula numbers always have degree symbols (°) superscript to the right of each formula digit, and they never have flats or sharps.
In the diatonic realm (a seven-thing oriented and one-based environment) the number seven is the octave multiplier.
In the chromatic environment (zero-based and twelve-thing oriented) the number twelve is the octave multiplier.

Almost nobody would refer to that number in the prior paragraph as "three followed by twelve zeros."

 Why Remembering the Names and Number of Dead in Iraq Matters
Numbers matter because they are attached to names, and right now the names are controversial, too.
On Friday, ABC's "Nightline" put the names and numbers together on national television to "remind our viewers -whether they agree with the war or not-that beyond the casualty numbers, these men and women are serving in Iraq in our names, and that those who have been killed have names and faces."
Before the broadcast, a television critic for the Washington Post called it "a cheap, content-free stunt designed to tug at our heartstrings and bag a big number on the second night of the May ratings race." So let's forget the names and the numbers and argue about television ratings and political motives.

 Aircooled.Net, Inc. - Anatomy of a VW Part Number
The "263" is the component number, and the "C" (in this case) means it's a 4th generation improvement of this part ("A" would have been the first improvement).
That is because many aftermarket parts suppliers and manufacturers BASED their part numbering systems on the official VW part numbering system, but their system has diverged and does not always follow the VW numbering system EXACTLY.
West Coast Metric, for example, completely omits the 4th, 5th, and 6th digits from their part numbers (we assume to avoid being redundant, since most of their parts would be in the Main Group Part Category "8" for Body Parts).

Numerology is the study of numbers, and the occult manner in which they reflect certain aptitudes and character tendencies, as an integral part of the cosmic plan.You need the birth date of an individual and the complete name as inputs to unlock all of the secrets that the numbers hold.
Thus larger numbers that occur from adding the numbers in the complete birth date or from the values assigned to each name, are reduced by adding the digits together until the sum achieved is one of the core numbers.
The sum of the numbers in your birth date and the sum of value derived from the letters in the name provide an interrelation of vibrations.These numbers show a great deal about character, purpose in life, what motivates, and where talents may lie.

In large numbers, elements are combined from largest to smallest, and zeros are implied.

 Names for Large Numbers
The English names for large numbers are coined from the Latin names for small numbers n by adding the ending -illion suggested by the name "million." Thus billion and trillion are coined from the Latin prefixes bi- (n = 2) and tri- (n = 3), respectively.
In science, the names of large numbers are usually avoided completely by using the appropriate SI prefixes.

I'd even go so far as to say mathematicians would begrudge this, on these grounds: since mathematicians are fully aware of the 'invisible' properties of numbers (the geometric progression motorway, the primes, the squares, irrationals, etc) they might object to these properties being flagged in order to make hoi polloi aware.
