Millions and Billions – granda estas la diferenco!

Mi pensas, ke multaj homoj ne vere scias la diferencon inter 1,000,000 (“million”, angle) kaj 1,000,000,000 (“billion”, angle).

1,000,000 sekundoj estas proksimume 11.5 tagoj, sed 1,000,000,000 estas plu ol 30 jaroj.

Por mia amikaro, kiuj ne studis ĉi-tiun verdan lingvon de Esperanto:

A million seconds is about 11.5 days, but a billion seconds is over 30 years.

And in case you are wondering, a trillion seconds is 31,688 years.

 

Million vs Billion vs Trillion
