Introduction of the smallest 6-digit number
Shubha went to a jewellery shop with her mom.
There she saw very expensive jewelleries and got surprised to see their prices.
She was surprised because all the prices were in
$6$
digits.
She knew all
$5$
digit number till
$99999$
but did not know anything about
$6$
digit numbers.
So, letâ€™s help her with
$6$
digit numbers.
Let's start with the smallest 6 digit number.
We all know that
$99999$
is the largest
$5$
digit number.
Let us try to find the next number after
$99999$
.
Let us add
$1$
to the digit
$9$
in the ones place.
Then, this digit
$9$
is changed to the next digit zero and
$1$
is carried over.
Then, this digit
$9$
is changed to the next digit zero and
$1$
is carried over.
Here, we see that the number
$10$
is at ten thousand place.
We know that we can not have two digit at one place.
So, this
$1$
will be shift to the left of thousands place.
So, this number actually represents one lakh.
And this is the smallest
$6$
digit number.
Revision
We observe that we find a
$6$
digit smallest number from
$5$
digit largest number by adding
$1$
to it.
The smallest
$6$
digit number is
$100000$
and is called as
$1$
lakh.
