# Tens and Units Blues Song

The main units of numbers in English are:

1 10 100 1,000 1,000,000
one ten hundred thousand million
1,000,000,000 1,000,000,000,000
billion trillion

In the song, you will hear and see the word zillion. This word is not a real number; it just means "a very, very large number"!

There are several ways that we can convey the idea of no quantity, or no number, or "0": we can say zero (or just oh). And we can say nought. You can hear "zero" and "nought" in the song above.
