Beware the Billion

Did you know the term “a billion” can actually refer to two different numbers? While common usage today generally accepts a billion to be 1,000,000,000; it is also known to refer to the number 1,000,000,000,000; most commonly in documents that were written pre-1970.

You have been warned.
