    Depending on context, which we do not have, the term round number could be appropriate. – Cerberus_Reinstate_Monica Feb 15 '18 at 18:19

    @mplungjan You do have to admit that ten is an odd power of ten. Then again, so is a thousand. But a hundred or a million is an even power of ten. :) – tchrist Feb 15 '18 at 19:15

    Not only power singular but plural powers. What do you call these numbers? I call them powers of ten – mplungjan Feb 15 '18 at 19:22
