Word for 5/17 – Billion

I am not a big number person.  I count my pennies.  I value a dollar.  I can stretch myself to deal with things in the hundreds, even the thousands.  But when it comes to a billion I am lost.  And looking online to deal with today’s word I found out that I have a very good reason for my inability to comprehend a billion or beyond:If part of the world claims a billion has 9 zeros behind it but another part of the word says 12 zeros I don’t feel as bad.   (And yes I know I skipped saying whether or not the concept of a million is in my range of comprehension.  I’m waiting to decide on that one.)
