Your 106 is 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 = 1,000,000 If you have 10 to a given power, then it's 10 times itself that many times. The rule of thumb is that 10 to any power is a 1 followed by that many zeros. What that means is that if you have 103 you'll have a 1 followed by 3 zeros, or 1,000. In the case of 108 you'll have a 1 followed by 8 zeros, or 100,000,000.

### What is a system of unit of measurement which use the power of ten?

I think you are referring to scientific notation in which you
read numbers multiplied by ten and to the power of whatever.
Example: You can write 1,000,000.0, or you can write 1.0 x 10 to
the sixth power
or for numbers with a value less than 1
Example: You can write 0.000001, or you can write 1.0 x 10 to
the negative sixth power
Either way you write it the number is the same.
