Consider the numbers from one to one million: 1, 2, 3, ..., 999998, 999999, 1000000.

What is remarkable about the numbers 40, 8, and 2202?

For starters, think about just the first  number.

Great - that's the "orderly" connection the puzzle alludes to.
40 is not just the first, but the only, number with that property.
Same with dos and ein, which I thought was interesting.

That's the first part, and now the properties of the next two numbers are sure to follow.

Consider the next two numbers as a pair, rather than singly.

If you were to write the numbers as one, two, three, four, .... one million. What would you find?
