Googoltriplex[1] (also known as googolplexplexplex[2], googolplusplexplus[3], googolplexianite[4]

Googoltriplex in zeroes

or gargantugoogolplex[5]) is a number equal to \(10^{10^{10^{10^{100}}}}\), or 1 followed by googolduplex zeroes. In Hyper-E Notation in can be written E100#4. In down-arrow notation it can also be written \(10 \downarrow\downarrow ((10\downarrow\downarrow101)+1)\).

Etymology Edit

The Greek prefix "tri-" (3) is understood to iterate the "-plex" suffix three times, forming an abbreviation for the unwieldy "googolplexplexplex." None of the other names seem to have any logical etymology.

Approximations in other notations Edit
