Both of them are large numbers but, the key difference between million vs. billion is that million is 10^6 or 1000000 and billion is 10^9 or 1000000000. One can easily remember the million vs. billion difference if we go back to the origin of these words. (Image Courtesy: fthmb.tqn.com)

Traditional British usage assigned new names for each power of one million (the long scale ): 1,000,000 = 1 million; 1,000,0002 = 1 billion; 1,000,0003 = 1 trillion; and so on. It was adapted from French usage, and is similar to the system that was documented or invented by Chuquet .

Every new term greater than million is one thousand times as large as the previous term. Thus, billion means a thousand millions (109), trillion means a thousand billions (1012), and so on.

Multiples of millions are written most commonly as 10,000,000 in numbers or 10 million. One million is the equivalent of 1,000 multiplied by 1,000. It is called a cardinal number as opposed to an ordinal number. A cardinal number designates a amount or quantity while an ordinal number designates a position or placement, like first or second.
