Amazing tech fact 2 – Google or googol

Posted on November 24th, 2012 by jonwrightway

Google got its name from the mathematical figure googol, which denotes the number;

10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,

000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

That’s ‘one followed by a hundred zeros’

A fitting name for a search engine that relies on complex mathematics to find exactly what people want.

A googol has its use in comparing with other very larger numbers such as the number of chess moves that are hypothetically possible. Edward Kasner used it to illustrate the difference between an unimaginably large number and infinity. Unlike Google’s significance to online marketing, a googol has no particular significance in mathematics.
