Mille is an Italian word for thousand. When it was combined with the suffix one, it resulted in the origin of the word million. It transformed into the word million by the late middle English period. In this blog, youâ€™ll know how many hundreds are in a million, and how many millions are in a billion. Moreover, how many 100k are in a billion will be discussed here.

**1. How many Thousands is a Million?**

The number of thousands that make a million is a **thousand.** That is, there are 1000 thousands in a million. A million has over** 6 zeroes**. It is the natural number that exists after 999,999, and before 1,000,001. The value of one million can be expressed in terms of tens, hundreds, thousands, and lakhs. (See How to write 1 million in numbers?)

**2. How many Hundreds are there in 10000?**

It is very easy to determine the number of hundreds in a given number. You simply have to divide the number by 100. If I divide 10000 by 100, I get 100 as a quotient. So, it means that there are** 100 hundreds** in 10000.

**3. How many 10000 will make a Million?**

As youâ€™ve read above, there are 1000 thousands in a million. Hence, it also means that there are a **hundred 10000 **in a million. If not, thereâ€™s a simple trick that I mentioned above. Simply divide the million by 10000. You get a hundred. Thus, a hundred 10000 make a million. In the next segment, you will see how many hundreds are in a million. (See How long is 1 million hours?)

Hundred comes from a Germanic origin with relation to Dutch honderd. The French cent is also known as a hundred**.** However, in the late middle English, it was a hundred that gained much acceptance and came into usage. You have already known the trick to finding out how many hundreds are in a million. If you divide a million, that is 1,000,000, by a hundred, that is 100, you get 10000 as a quotient. That concludes, there are **10000 hundreds** in a million. (See What should the abbreviation for million be M or MM)

**5. How many Times does 1000 go into Millions?**

Thousand as a word originates from the old English *Ã¾Ãºsend***.** If youâ€™ve been reading closely, you already know the fact that there are 1000 thousands in a million. A thousand is shortly referred to as k, which refers to Kilo in Greek**. **That means a **1000** or 1 k goes thousand times into a million. (See How much does a million dollars weigh in 20 dollar bills?)

Just like the method while finding how many hundreds are in a million that youâ€™ve been using, you should divide a million, that is 1,000,000, by a hundred thousands. But to divide, you should know how much is a hundred thousand. A hundred thousands equals the number that results when you multiply a hundred by a thousand. Thus a hundred thousands is 100000. That is, a hundred thousands is one lakh. If you divide one million with one lakh, you get a ten. That means, there are ten lakhs in a million. Hence,** 10 hundred thousands make a million**.

**7. How can You turn 100k into a Million?**

What is a k? k refers to a kilo in Greek. In numerals, k refers to a thousand. 1000 can be thus written as 1k. So, how much is 100k now? 100k is thus a hundred thousand. That is one lakh or 100,000. To turn one lakh into one million we need 9 more lakhs. That is we need 10 times one lakh to turn one lakh into a million. Hence, to turn 100k into a million, you would need ten 100ks. (See What does k stand for in Money?)

**8. How many 100k are in a Billion?**

Besides learning how many hundreds are in a million, it’s time to know some of these facts about billion too. So what is a billion? A billion is a thousand million. Imagine the number of zeros this number would have! A thousand million, or a billion is 1,000,000,000 in numerical value.

A fun fact is that, if you read one number per second, it would take you almost 31.5 years to get to the number 1 billion. If one billion equals 100 million, then how many 100 thousands are in a billion? 100k is a lakh. 10 lakhs make one million. Thousand millions make a billion. Thus, there are** ten thousand 100k **in a billion. Must see How Long is 1 Billion Seconds in Hours?

### 9. How many Tens are in a Billion?

A billion is a natural number that follows **nine noughts.** If you divide one billion by ten, you will get one hundred million as a quotient. Thus, one hundred million tens are in a billion. In the short scale, a billion is defined as a thousand million. While in the long scale, the same billion is referred to as a million million. Thus there are 100 million tens in one billion on a short scale and 100 billion on a long scale. Also, check out Why is Mathematical Concept Important?

**10. How many Millions are in a Billion?**

One billion is equal to a **thousand million**. Billion is derived from two words of french origin, bi and million. As you might have already known, bi refers to two. The term billion is coined in the late 17th century by substituting the prefix of million, mi, with the word bi. A billion is a million million on the long scale of measurement. Thus the name **bi+million** has emerged. This long-scale billion is also referred to as** a trillion on a short scale**. (See How much is 6 million pennies?)
