Well, not that you really probably want to know how to say such an absurdly large number. However for those of you who are interested (allowing for rounding) it is:

one quintillion, three hundred forty quadrillion, one hundred sixty-four trillion, one hundred eighty-three billion, six million, three hundred thirty-nine thousand, eight hundred forty

And yes you can find out how to write your very own absurdly long numbers as well in R! I have adapted John Fox's numbers2words function in order to allow for both absurdly long words as well as decimals. We can see some examples below:

Hmmm.. assuming you chose three exponentiations because round(pi)=3, here goes:

ReplyDeletefunction(x) {y <-x; for (j in 1:(trunc(x)-1) ) y <- x^y; return(number2words(y)}

:-)

Yep no reason really to choose π^π^π. People seem to have some fascination with π.

what's 'dpe' in your ttv function?

ReplyDeleteSorry about that. Removed it. I think it should work fine now.

Deletealso see 'english' package

ReplyDeleteexcellent point! I had not seen the package. However, try as.english("10001001000000000010010101001010120345667") or as.english(.123) and you will find that the above number2words will translate to english a larger set of numbers.
