A dialogue is equal to 210 = 1010 = 10,000,000,000,[1] ten billion, or tenplex. The term was coined by Sbiis Saibian, and its name is a homonym with an English word meaning a conversation between two people. Using Alistair Cockburn's fz- prefix, it can be named "fzten".[2]

Donald Knuth calls this number quadryriad, and it's equal to using the -yllion system.

This number is also called a guppyspeck.[3]

Aarex Tiaokhiao calls this number doocol, bigiol[4]

In Culture Edit

Some currencies, such as the German Papiermark, the Hungarian pengő and the third Zimbabwean dollar, had banknotes with this number in the denomination.

In the song Marvin the android Marvin, (who is a character from The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy ), laments that he has "Ten billion logic functions, maybe more" but "They make me pick the paper off the floor".
