The long and short scales are two of several naming systems for integer powers of ten which use some of the same terms with different magnitudes. For whole numbers smaller than 1,000,000,000 (109), such as one thousand or one million, the two scales are identical. For larger numbers, starting with 109, the two systems differ. For identical names, the long scale uses multipliers of one million, whereas the short scale uses one thousand. For example, one billion is 103 million in the short scale, while it is 106 million in the long scale. The long scale system introduces new terms for the intervening multipliers, typically replacing the word ending -ion with -iard.
