sojfarm:I disagree... In Mathematics, the only exception to this rule is index. Any number raised to the power of zero (index of zero) equals one.

0 × 3 means zero is three places. Counting zero in three places gives you zero. Since multiplication is cumulative, anything times zero will give you zero.

Zero means nothing. That means it's not in existence. 100 times nothingness or a million times nothingness is still zero. No offense bros you do arithmetic for primary school so

BobFischer: An example of 'mathematical proof' I realize you don't want too much mathematics, but I'd like to point out that it is rather trivial to "prove", using only the basic few axioms (up to the distributive law) I suppose you do not need much convincing that 0 + 0 = 0 (which itself is a consequence of the additive identity n + 0 = a, with a = 0) Now, as per the distributive law, n * (b+c) = n*b + n*c (b and c are two other arbitrary numbers. So there are b oranges and c apples in a bag. A bag is (b+c). If you buy 2 bags, then you get twice the number of oranges and twice the number of apples > 2(b+c) = 2b + 2c.) And so n*0 = n* (0+0) = n*0 + n*0, (from the previous bit) So n*0 = n*0 + n*0 Subtract (n*0) from both sides, giving 0 = n*0 N.B Quora 1 Like

Worldliness:. Still doesn't make much sense to me sir/ma........I don't have any problem believing that 0*30=0 because logically one can say that nothing in 30 places will always be nothing,but I find it almost impossible to believe that 30*0 =0......what is the logical explanation to convince a man who has 30# that because his 30# was multiple by nothing (0) and as such he has no money again?.it doesn't add up. 1 Like

BobFischer:because in mathematics addition and multiplication are commutative. That is. 1+2 =2+1. Also 1*3=3*1.

OP, I love how you think. You concluded that 0x3 and 3x0 are two different statements and I will like to start my explanation from there. Imagine a friend of yours decided to send you 0naira at 3 different times, how much will hit your account? Definitely 0naira right? Which means you never received any money. Now imagine your friend who has 3 naira decided to send it to you at 0time I.e your friend didn't send the money, so how much will you have? Still 0 naira because the money never actually left your friend's account. So 0×3 or 3x0 will always give you 0 Hope this helps. 6 Likes

mu2sa2: Using your apples analogy. Let's assume you have a bag full of apples. Scenario 1: (0 * 3 = 0) If I bring 3 boxes and ask you to "not" put any apple in the boxes. How many apples will be in the boxes? zero right? scenario 2: (1 * 3 = 3) If I bring 3 boxes again and I ask you to put "an" apple in each box. The total number of apples in the boxes will be 3 right? Scenario 3: (2 * 3 = 6) 3 boxes and you're ask to put 2 apples in each boxes. The summation of apples in the boxes will be 6 right. Scenario 4: (3 * 0 = 0) If I dont bring any box, but I ask you to put 3 apples each box. How many apples will I have in the box?? None because I didn't provide you with any box.

Reason is that any number in zero places means nothing which makes it zero.
