How’s that?

Assume there are approximately 5,000,000,000 (5 billion) people on Earth.

What would you estimate to be the result, if you multiply together the number of fingers on every person's left-hands by the number of persons?

(For the purposes of this exercise, thumbs count as fingers, for five fingers per hand.)

If you cannot estimate the number then try to guess how long the number would be.
