Julian, that's WAY more than 20 characters! 61 just in the equation! 3 more if you count the, "x=9"!

That's even smaller than Knittel's!

Do not try and work that out. Your calculator will explode.

It is too large to express in scientific notation so it needs special notation to write down. Graham's number is much larger than other well known large numbers such as a googol and a googolplex,

Mine equals 13,026,435,229,275,350,799, which is actually smaller than just writing 20 9s.
Or indeed 20 Fs.
FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

EDIT: I tried reading about that Graham's number thingy. They lost me at "Consider an n-dimensional hypercube"

Yes, which is why there is the smaller form there.
Anyways, Z↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑Z. In base 62, capital>lowercase.

10 Characters that make up the largest number known to man. Maybe not in number, but in size.

Having several 'To the powers of' in a row will create a math error. In fact, most of yours aren't valid on a calculator.
