We can think of each of these numbers as having six digits whether 000,001 or 999,973.
So if there are 1 million numbers with six digits each then there are six million total digits.
Since we are going from 000,000 to 999,999 and there are ten digits (0,1,2,ā€¦,8,9), then each digit is used the same number of times.
So there must be 6,000,000 / 10 = 600,000 of each digit used
Therefore, there are 600,000 ā€œ1sā€ between 0 and 999,999.

Also, there are:
1 "1" between 0 and 9
20 "1's" between 0 and 99
300 "1's" between 0 and 999
4,000 "1's" between 0 and 9,999
50,000 "1's" between 0 and 99,999
600,000 "1's" between 0 and 999,999
etc
Like that And will remember that.
