1 followed by 100 zeros

What’s a Google?

« Googol » is the mathematical term for a 1 followed by 100 zeros.

The term was coined by Milton Sirotta, nephew of American mathematician Edward Kasner, and was popularized in the book, « Mathematics and the Imagination » by Kasner and James Newman.

Google’s play on the term reflects the company’s mission to organize the immense amount of information available on the web.
