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) 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. (E) Five hundred and ninety thousand, and one. DOWN (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. (K) Ninety-nine thousand and twenty-four. (L) Five thousand, two hundred and five.
