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.
