How many billions in a trillion?
Have you ever found yourself thinking about a lot of money and got lost in the thoughts of how much money is there in a billion? Or more? Let’s put an answer to this question.
If you want to know the amount of a billion, you need to start with a familiar amount. A million-dollar is equivalent to a thousand thousand, or you can also say 10 lacs.
One billion is equivalent to one thousand million. If you put zeros with them, the comparison will be easier.
And one trillion is equivalent to one thousand billion.
One million = 1,000,000
One billion = 1,000,000,000
One trillion = 1,000,000,000,000
A billion can be calculated by multiplying the amount in million by one thousand. Similarly, a trillion can be calculated by multiplying the amount in billions by one thousand.
Let’s look at the chart for reference.

If you are asked now, how many billions are there in 9 trillion? What do you do?
You multiply 9 by 1000 and you get your amount in billions.
9 trillion = 9 * 1000 billion = 9000 billion
Most of the time people confuse the amount and forget that a billion is a lot bigger than a million. When you hear the term millionaire and the term billionaire, you may get confused. But the amounts differ by a very large amount.
How many days do you think there are in a million seconds?
It’s 11.5 days.
Now imagine how many days there are in a billion seconds?
31.5 years! See the difference?
It’s the same with a trillion.
There are 31709.8 years in a trillion seconds.
