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) Seven million, one hundred and five thousand and ninety-two (B) Two hundred and seven thousand, two hundred and six. (C) Two hundred and forty. (D) Six thousand and thirty-three. (E) Four million, six hundred and thirty-one thousand, and two. DOWN (F) Twelve thousand and one. (G) Five hundred and two thousand, and ten. (H) Nine hundred and ninety-six thousand and twenty three. (I) One hundred and twenty four thousand, and sixty. (J) Nine thousand and forty-nine. (K) Three thousand four hundred and one. (L) Twenty.
