A crore is equal to ten million or 10,000,000.[1] It is used in the Indian naming system. One crore is 100 lakh. Larger numbers are sometimes combinations of both, a lakh crore for example equal to one trillion. The population of countries is often expressed in crore; for example, India had a population of approximately 125.2 crore in 2013.

Sbiis Saibian gave the name pipsqueak for this number.[2]
