Yeh, the "10" is interesting too. One naught is usually written "10" and taken as ten, but, of course, if you're in binary then "10" actually equals two and in hexadecimal "10" equals sixteen. As I said the term "10 billion" could mean anything, it depends on the context. I find mathematical terms tricky. A kilobyte, for instance, isn't a thousand anything, it's actually 1024 bytes. And you mustn't confuse your bytes and bits. There are 8 bits in a byte but a bit is what you use to steer a horse !! :-)
Mathematicians and scientists tell us that maths is a universal language. All I can say is that it has a lot of blinking dialects !!
