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 cross-number in which all the answers have one or more zeros as place-holders. 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 cross-number.

 ACROSS (A) One hundred and twenty four thousand and thirty-five. (B) Fifty thousand, two hundred and two. (C) Five thousand and ninety-three. (D) Two hundred and sixty-six thousand and four.. (E) Four hundred and ninety thousand and one. DOWN (F) Two thousand and one. (G) Three thousand and twenty-five. (H) Four hundred and nine. (I) Three hundred and forty thousand, one hundred and twelve. (J) Thirty two thousand and eighty. (K) Seven thousand six hundred and four.. (L) Four thousand one hundred and two.
