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) Six hundred and twenty thousand, one hundred and one (B) Two hundred and seven thousand, five hundred and six. (C) Four hundred and one. (D) Eight thousand and fifty. (E) One million, one thousand, nine hundred and seven. DOWN (F) Twenty-two thousand and one. (G) One hundred and fifteen thousand, and forty. (H) One hundred and fifty-six thousand and forty. (I) Three hundred and forty thousand, one hundred and thirteen. (J) One thousand and nineteen.. (K) Five thousand and ninety-nine. (L) Seventy.
