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.
(A) Five million, nine hundred and two thousand, one hundred and three.
(B) Eighty thousand, four hundred and thirty-four.
(C) One thousand, two hundred and three.
(D) Nine hundred and sixty-two thousand, and seven.

(F) Nine thousand, three hundred and eight.
(G) One thousand, and forty-one.
(H) Three thousand four hundred.
(I) Two hundred and seven thousand, seven hundred and three.
(J) Three hundred and sixty thousand, two hundred and seventeen.
