### From the mouth of a child

Background: my daughter has been learning about 3-digit numbers and she's pretty confident with numbers that have hundreds now. She's also heard us adults mention some bigger numbers.

Today she said that she knows how the numbers go:

"Hundred, thousand, million, googol, and gamazon."

What's a "gamazon"??

It's a new number she made up, which "comes after googol and nine hundred ninety-nine."

I guess she's learned something anyway.
