## How many zeros are in a googolplex?

one hundred zeros

## Is there a number bigger than googolplex?

Graham’s number is bigger the number of atoms in the observable Universe, which is thought to be between 1078 and 1082. Graham’s number is also bigger than a googolplex, which Milton initially defined as a 1, followed by writing zeroes until you get tired, but is now commonly accepted to be 10googol=10(10100).

## What does a googolplex look like?

A googolplex is a 1 followed by a googol of zeros.

It’s impossible to write out, but in scientific notation it looks like 1 x 1010^100.

## Can you write out a googolplex?

There are a googol zeroes in a googolplex or 10 100. That is, there are about 100 quintillion zeroes in a googolplex for every atom in the universe, so it’s surely impossible to write out all the digits. You can, however write it as 10 10^100 which is 10 raised to the googol (10 100) power.
