# Can you imagine one trillion dollars? (6 pics)

Posted in Pictures   10 Mar 2009   / 11752 views

We all heard when people say one million, one billion or one trillion dollars.
But what does that look like?

A packet of one hundred \$100 bills is less than 1/2" thick and contains \$10,000, which can fit easily in your pocket.

It’s hard to believe but this next little pile is \$1 million dollars (100 packets of \$10,000).

While a \$1 million looked a little unimpressive, \$100 million is a little more respectable. It fits neatly on a standard pallet...

And \$1 BILLION dollars... now we're really getting somewhere...

Next we'll look at ONE TRILLION dollars. This is that number we've been hearing so much about. What is a trillion dollars? Well, it's a million million. It's a thousand billion. It's a one followed by 12 zeros.

It's pretty surprising.

And here’s \$1 trillion dollars...
(And notice those pallets are double stacked.)

So, the next time you hear someone toss around the phrase "trillion dollars"... that's what they're talking about.

Thats completely wrong. A trillion is a 1000 billion. So the 100x10 billion stacks would equal a trillion.
Notice the last stacks;
1 row is 50 double stacks => 100stacks = 100 billion
You would only need 10 more row to make the trillion NOT THE 50 That was represented in the pic.
