In America I have heard people referred to as being billionaires when they have more than 100 million dollars.
But isn’t a billion come just after 999,999,999 million?
And if a billionaire achieves that milestone at $100 million why does this story on CNN say that the movie made $114 million?
Should it be $1.14 billion?
Don’t Americans use the same math we use in Canada?
This was a recent headline on Cnn.com
"Spider-Man" swung into box office history with a record-smashing $114 million estimated haul from its first weekend
Can someone explain this to me please.
We’re just above the 49th…
