# Larger Number of Digits 7 and Above:

Large numbers are needed in many places in daily life.

For example, for giving the number of students in a school, the number of people in a village or town, money paid or received in large transactions (paying and selling), in measuring large distances say between various cities in a country or in the world and so on.

• If we add one more to the greatest 6-digit number we get the smallest 7-digit number. It is called the ten lakh.
• Write down the greatest 6-digit number and the smallest 7-digit number. Write the greatest 7-digit number and the smallest 8-digit number. The smallest8-digit number is called one crore.
• Greatest 6-digit number + 1 = Smallest 7-digit number (i.e., Ten lakh).

• Greatest 7-digit number + 1 = Smallest 8-digit number (i.e., one crore).

• You can convert every large number in terms of smaller numbers:
1 hundred = 10 tens
1 thousand = 10 hundreds = 100 tens
1 lakh = 100 thousands = 1000 hundreds
1 crore = 100 lakhs = 10,000 thousands

• Pattern:

9 + 1 = 10.

99 + 1 = 100.

999 + 1 = 1000.

9,999 + 1 = 10,000.

99,999 + 1 =1,00,000.

9,99,999 + 1 = 10,00,000.

99,99,999 + 1 = 1,00,00,000.
