Review: Can You Count to a Googol? (Wells of Knowledge Science)

User Review  - Shelli - Goodreads

An entertaining and educational book about very large numbers that make most people's brains hurt. How much is a googol? 10 to the 100th power! The illustrations were cute and helped to show just how many a billion and a trillion are, and what those numbers are most often used to represent. Read full review
