OP it's simply because there are laws that Govern Mathematics!!!
but let's bring it to Our daily life perspective, As human being can you give what you don't have??
The Answer to the above Question is NO
Zero can't power any number up neither does it reduce them but instead it null them to Zero.

Just has you can't impact when you have not been impacted

A question like this is not just a question for fun, in fact it is a question born of deep provoking thought.

Luke Williams called this kind a of question, a disruptive question that need a disruptive solution, this is how great ideas is born.

When you try to turn upside down or turn back from the norm, you become genius.

OP please be my friend, I need a great thinkers like you to share mind with.

It was ingenuity like his that gave birth to flat earthers and so many conspiracy theories.

Still better than snake threads tho.

Why is any any number multiply by zero is equal to zero?

10 x 0 = 0
100 x 0 = 0
1000 x 0 = 0

If i have 100 oranges on a table and i multiply it by zero. Why do i suddenly have zero?

100 oranges X 0 = 0
1000 pears X 0 = 0

Lol! You made me laugh.

Look at it this way. If you have no money (Zero Naira) and all your brothers, sisters, relatives, extended relatives etc all have no money (Zero Naira), even if there is a hundred of you all together, the combination of all your money is still no money (Zero Naira). Mathematically put - 0 x100 = 0.

Zero practically means nothing.

So nothing 1 time, nothing 2 times and nothing 1000 times 0r 1million times is still equal to nothing.

Eg) if i dont have 1 naira, if you ask me for 1 naira for 1 time or even 100 times, i still dont have any. that is it.


grin grin grin grin grin. because of stinginess I could perfectly understand the last statement grin grin grin grin grin

If you multiply the oranges by zero which mean none existent,so if you times your self by death,what do you get DEATH...so it mean the oranges arentt existing anylonger or weren't existing

what about if all my brothers, sisters, relatives, extended relatives etc all have money and none of us is broke (Zero Naira),
if you combine all our money together in 100 places and no one is broke. Mathematically put 100 x 0 = 0. why is it still zero and not 100. tongue

The two statement above is not the same though the result is the same

If somebody's entire family (100 altogether) All Have Money (1 billion naira each) and none is broke, if we combine all their money together in 100 places and none is broke then mathematically put 100 x 1 billion = 100 billion.

Guy, I don't know what you are on about. 100 x 0 = 0 because 100 times of nothing is still nothing. If nothing occurs 100 times then it's still nothing.

100 (hundred) x 0 (nothing) ie 100 occurrences of zero is still = 0

0 (nothing) x 100 (hundred) ie zero (or no) occurrences of 100 (basically 100 did not even occur at all - nothing occurred) is still = 0

...if you went to the bank 100 times and on each occasion you withdrew 0 (NO) money, you will still have 0 (NO) money. Basically, it doesn't matter how many times you go or the bank, if on each occasion you come back with no money then you visits to the bank have amounted to 0 (NO) money in total.

Very simple!

I’ll simplify this, Zero (0) ≈ nothing, and you can’t get something out nothing.

Multiply “anything“ by “nothing” will always yields nothing.

0 * 10 oranges at hand = 10 oranges... Reasons being that the oranges won't mysteriously disappear from my hand...

Imagine multiplying the 6 luggage bags by 0 and yet the load from the luggage still on you...

so if you multiply the same 6 luggages by 2, then suddenly 12 luggages will appear??

No, you don't get it, the result of this thinking is not to get the norm right result but to generate unexpected idea.

Chapter 1 of "50 mathematical ideas you really need to know by Tony Crilly" discusses "zero" and its mathematical importance.

It's an interesting read and I recommend it for your research.

I don't think op's puzzle has been cracked.
0 × 3 = 0 ( the answer is logical: nothing 3 times is still nothing). But why is
3 × 0 =0 (this is illogical: e.g if I have 3 apples and try to multiply it 0 times, I can't, but my 3 apples should remain 3, not 0.
In case the puzzle can't be cracked in Queen's English, I beg let somebody try good old pidgin - maybe this will help, because with pidgin you are not constrained by rules of grammar ( just say it any how- the language is immaterial as long as the meaning is plain).

Because anything associated with zero must become zero

BobFischer:


mind you
0 * 3 and
3 * 0 are two different statement.

0 (nothing) * 3 (something) = 0 (nothing)


3 (something) * 0 (nothing) = 0 (nothing).

why isnt it
3 * 0 = 3
0 * 3 = 0
If 3 are in nothing places,where did u put the 3?
