Here is a short sequence that I made when brainstorming puzzles:

19

101

920

20009

701

104

403

311

3000000000000000003

...

You need to figure the next one out.

Just so you know, this is an actual series that I made, and although the jump to 3,000,000,000,000,000,003 is ridiculous, it will make sense when you see the answer.

EDIT: It has come to my attention that 14004 would be a better substitute for 3000000000000000003. I am going to leave 3000000000000000003 on the chart as it would also be a feasible answer.

This could relate to

The number of digits in really large powers of ten with names....

19

There are 19 digits in $10^{18}$, a quintillion (in North America).

101

There are 101 digits in $10^{100}$, a googol.

920

20009

701

104

403

311

3000000000000000004

There are this many digits in an attillion

  • $\begingroup$ Darn, I thought the 3000000000000004 one was perfect! Thanks though @XDVV $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Jun 25 at 16:10
  • $\begingroup$ I'm actually very surprised you managed to find 3000000000000000004 useful for anything! $\endgroup$ – XDVV Jun 25 at 16:11
