there are seven digits in one million only has six zeros you start with the first digit zero right to left continue with each digit as zero until you get to the required amount the last digit should represent the required amount eg. one million should read

(1)0 units

(2)o tens

(3)0 hundreds

(4)0 thousands  

(5 0 tens of thousands

(6)0 hundreds of thousands

(6)1 million  1000000

then the sequence of numbers should be continued with (tens of) to get to a higher amount like one hundred million you do not use the units any more.

this is the method i learnt at school many many years ago hope this helps somehow

I can help you solve problems involving fractions, decimals, ratios, and algebra. I can teach you how to do math faster, and even in your head. I can teach math definitions, and help you study, if necessary. Please do not ask any graphing, trigonometry, or calculus questions. Try to work through homework questions before asking for assistance.


I routinely process numbers of all kinds in my head, without need of a calculator.

I was an A math student while in high school.
