A = 10^{3}, B = 10^{9}, C=10^{27}, D=10^{2}, E=3, F=4, G=8, H=3, I=5, J=???, K=???, L=11, M=10^{6}, N=1, O=1, P=10^{18}, Q=10^{15}, R=3, S=6, T=2, U=4, V=5, W=2, X=6, Y=20, Z=???

I woke up and this popped into my head. Two questions:

First, what is the rule?

Second, what are the missing values?

Hint: I excluded the number 0 because, well, it doesn't really count.

First one with the answer gets a star named after him/her.

I would answer your questions but you already explained it to me, so I feel it would be cheating :)

Answer: If you count, and spell out the words for each number in English, the first time you run into that letter is given in the sequence:

A=10^3=one thousAnd

B=10^9=one Billion

C=10^27=one oCtillion

D=10^2=one hunDred

E=3 = thrEe

etc.

The problem with J is it's never used in counting numbers.

K is if you're counting by 10^(-5) which is "one laKhth"

Z if you're including Zero in your count.
