No. One hundred million does not equal one billion. Since a billion means a thousand million, one hundred million is ten times smaller than a billion.

How much is 2000 million in billions?

2 billion. One billion is equal to one thousand million. You can find the number of billions by dividing the number of millions by 1000.

2000 / 1000 = 2.
