How many zeros does a million and billion have.
That depends on the definitions of "million" and "billion" which (I think) vary between countries. Like "billion" in America is "a thousand million" but I'm pretty sure it's something different ("a million million"?) in England. (Wikipedia: Billion) What definitions does your book give?

I've never heard of "lakhs" or "crore". What are they? Are your definitions different from Wikipedia: Lakh and Wikipedia: Crore?

When you reply, please include the exercise that you're having trouble with, along with your working so far on it. Thank you!
