What is 10% of 1 Billion?

What is 10% of 1 Billion?

Answer

It depends on what country you're in.

In most English speaking countries we use "the short scale",

where: 1 billion = 1000 million (9 zeros) - Thus 10% = 100 million

But in French-speaking Canada, most of the E.U. and most of

Latin America (including Mexico), they use "the long scale",

where: 1 billion = 1 million million (12 zeros) - Thus 10% = 100 millards

To determine which scale to use for the country in which you

live, work, visit or do business see the reference below. ↓

1 000 000 000/ 100 * 10 = 100 000 000

10% = .1

.1 * 1,000,000,000 = 100,000,000
