Trillion may mean:


Either of the two numbers (please see long and short scales for more detail):

  In the American system one billion is 1,000,000,000 and a trillion is 1,000,000,000,000 so one trillion is one thousand times one billion. 
   In the British system one billion is 1,000,000,000,000 and one trillion is 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 so one trillion is one million times     one billion.
