I am writing a program and I like to name things well. I have to say if a value is in the thousands, millions, billions, or trillions. My question is what do we call the set of number names that are ",000" from each other?
I know I am looking for something like "order of magnitude" but that is powers of ten.
Edit: I know about the "long scale" vs. "short scale" issue. I am looking to see if there is a word that describes the set in English which as I understand it is always short scale.
