We've all kept a place for a friend in a queue. It's a position in the line
either in front or behind you. Well, zeros in a number do a similar favour.
The place in the queue is held until a whole number is added. Without zeros
1,000,000 would only be 1, a bullseye would only be 5 and the distance to
the Sun would be a mere 93 miles. Below is a crossnumber in which all the
answers have one or more zeros as placeholders. Fill in the Across and Down
clues by writing out the word numbers in figures. To check you are correct,
see if they fit the crossnumber.
