    Trillion dollors visulisation error

 

  Inches          
 £                                                                   1,000,000 4 1/3 foot        
 £                                                           1,000,000,000 4000 333.3333 Feet      
 £                                                   1,000,000,000,000 4000000 63.13131 Miles ie 4000000/63360 inches to a mile

OK I must be making a mistake but the measurements in the video seem wrong to me – a million is a 4inch stack so a billion in 1000 time greater ie 4000 inches divided by 12  which is 333.33 feet and  trillion is four million inches which is 63.13 miles – ignoring any compression due to the excessive weight of our neat stack.

Please tell me where I am going wrong  in my calculations. .
