How to use "A million" in context?
A million is a very large number. When we hear the word "million," our mind automatically fills in the number with a really big number. But, really, a million is just a thousand thousands. To put it into perspective, a million is the equivalent of 3.3 million. So, a million is not as big as we think it is. In fact, it is about the size of a couple of dozen chicken eggs. To put it into even more perspective, a million is about the size of a pencil eraser.
