    I thought that one million billion would be represented as (10^6)^9 in which case it would be 10^54 but the handy-dandy calculator begs to differ. The output is the same for 1,000,000*1,000,000,000 and 10^15.
    I can't explain to save my life, so wait around for bobpursely to pop in with a contrived explanation.
