# How many millions does it take to make a billion?

Millions and Billions are different ways to represent large numbers

## Answer: It takes 1000 million to make a billion

Let's look into the conversion of millions to billion

**Explanation:**

Let's look into the representation of 1 million and 1 billion

1 million = 1,000,000

1 billion = 1,000,000,000

There are 6 zeros in 1 million and 9 zeros in 1 billion

1 billion = 1,000,000,000

= 1000 × 1,000,000

= 1000 × 1 million (Since, 1 million = 1,000,000)

Thus, 1 billion is 1000 times 1 million
