OMG I just realized this.
tera- = 4 thousands | 4 = tetra-
peta = 5 thousands | 5 = penta-
exa = 6 thousands | 6 = hexa-
zetta = 7 thousands | 7 = septa-
yotta = 8 thousands | 8 = octa-
@futzle This is confusing. By "thousands", do you mean "group of three places"?
E.g., 1 tera-stuff is 1,000,000,000,000 stuffs?
@futzle OK, that's what I thought, but I wasn't positive about that. Thanks for the clarity. :)
Also, thanks for pointing out the associations between the numbering systems. That is helpful.
