# Gazillion

A gazillion normally refers to an indefinitely large quantity, like a zillion.

However, based on this Calvin and Hobbes comic strip:

Calvin: Psst! Susie, what's 7 + 6?
Susie: Three hundred billion gazillion.
Calvin: Oh, thanks for the big help!
Susie: That's a three, followed by 85 zeroes.
Calvin: Ah! I knew that.

Since 300 billion gazillion is equal to $$3 \cdot 10^{85}$$, a gazillion would then be equal to $$10^{74}$$, or one hundred trevigintillion.[1] If you use the long scale, a gazillion is equal to $$10^{71}$$.
