Question
Dear Prof Cleggsan

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Century
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/21st_century
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3rd_millennium

1 Century = 100 years.
100 Centuries  = 100 * 100 years = 10 raised to power of 4 = 10000 years.

20th century = 1901 to 2000
21st century = 2001 to 2100 -> Currently we are in this century.
22nd century = 2101 to 2200
23rd century = 2201 to 2300
.
.
.
.
98th century = 9701 to 9800
99th century = 9801 to 9900
100th century = 9901 to 10000
101st century = 10001 to 10100
.
.
.

Year becomes a 5 digit number.

1.

1 century = 100 years. Mathematically 100 centuries = 10000 years,
Is there be any other term for 100 centuries similar to 100 years
termed as a century ?.

2. Does last year of 100th century and 101st century 100 years becomes a 5 digit numeric year figure as shown above ?.

3. Can there be any other term used instead of
"We are in 100th century" ?. in 100th century as we say currently "We are in 21st century" and currently the year is 2013 ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Naming of the years is something that grows with time and trend.

I have no additional suggestion for you.  

If you look up synonyms for the word 'century' one does not find anything of interest.
Perhaps someone will invent a new term for it.  Here is one KC or KiloCentury.  You can make up your own and if society likes it maybe you will become famous.

Have a nice afternoon.
