Many of you have had an excellent stab at this problem - it requires a lot of perseverance - and you have come up with several ways, all of which take four steps. Matthew from Gayhurst School suggests:$1 000 000 \times 7 = 7 000 000$
Tom, who goes to The Oratory Preparatory School found a different way which is equally as quick:$1000000\times77=77000000$
Yet another way was discovered by Robert from U-Hill Secondary and pupils from the Sutton Masterclass:$1 000 000 \times 7 = 7 000 000$
Pupils from Moorfield Junior School told us about a fourth way:$1,000,000\times 7 =7,000,000$
Theo, Matthew, Seth and Jessie from Christ Church Primary School went about it in this way:$1 000 000\div 77 777 777 = 0.0128571$
This is interesting. I'm particularly intrigued by the second line. I wonder why the calculator display gives zero?
Fantastic - and to think it looked so difficult!
