Counting to Billion

A billion is big number = \( 10^9 \). If you started to count from \( 1 \) to \( 10^9 \), you wouldn’t reach a billion until about 31 years and 252 days later. (Assuming that you count a number a second)

In reality, it would take you longer because larger numbers would take more than a second to pronounce.
