Constructing numbers up to 10,000,000

We investigated the lowest amount of place value counters needed to represent the population of Finland (5,472,737). We were not allowed million counters to do this. We discovered that 50 ‘100,000’ discs would make 5,000,000. We needed an extra 30 counters to make the rest of the figure.
