Problem of the Month - April 2023

Where on this number line would you place the number 1 billion?

The open number line has two numbers on it.  On the far left, is the number 0.  On the far right is the number 1 trillion.


Since 1 trillion is 1 000 billion, we would break up the number line in 1000 equal parts between 0 and 1 trillion and 1 billion would be the first tick beside 0.  On this number line 1 billion would be very close to 0.  What number is halfway between 1 billion and 1 trillion?
