Thus, the difference between billion and trillion is the factor of 1000.

A trillion is a thousand times bigger than a billion, and a billion is a thousand times less than a trillion.

One billion, the natural number preceding 1000000001 and following 999999999, is thousand times a million in short scale.

Note that some languages different from modern English, including, but not limited to, Spanish, German, French, and Portuguese employ the term *billion* for 10^{12}, and the term *trillion* for 10^{18}.

Thus, in languages making use of the long scale notation one billion is 1,000,000,000,000 (twelve zeros) and one trillion is 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 (eighteen zeros).
