What's a Googolplex?

A googolplex is a very very big number, as distinct from just a very big number. It is:

TEN raised to the power of a GOOGOL

Or, to put it another way, it's 10GOOGOL

Or, 10^(10^100)

10^6 is 1000000, (6 zeroes), 10^9 is 1000000000, (nine zeroes), and 10^googol is a number which has 1 followed by a googol zeroes. So, how many is a googol. That's very big too... find out here
