Exa-

From HandWiki

Exa is a decimal unit prefix in the metric system denoting 1018 or 1000000000000000000. It was added as an SI prefix to the International System of Units (SI) in 1975,[1] and has the unit symbol E.

Exa comes from the ancient Greek ἕξ héx, used as a prefix ἑξά- hexá-, meaning six (like hexa-), because it is equal to 10006.
