    I'm not a teacher!

    He was offered a salary of 100.000 $ (or Euros or yen or whatever) or more ( up to 999.999 $) to move to a rival company
    The amount of the salary contains 6 digits or "figures".
    Does this answer your question?
    Why is this thread called "run a car"?

    You should have waited for englishlearner77 to respond to the question in Rover_KE's post.

    Oops, looks like Rover_KE posted his message while I was composing mine.
    Of course I would have waited, but I just didn't see it and I didn't get a warning that someone had posted another reply as on some other forums.
    Sorry!
