# Top 10 Reasons Why 0 Is the Best Number In Math

Is 0 the best number in math? If it is, give me a couple of reasons!
The Top Ten
1 Anything multiplied by 0 is equal to 0

Did you hear about the Mathematician who was afraid of numbers? He stopped at nothing to avoid them.

isn't zero a place holder?

The best thing about 0 is how unlike other numbers, you can't just multiply both sides of an equation with 0 and solve it. Think abot it, every number can be used to do so, except 0

I love 0.-WillowChance

2 Anything divided by it is undefined

Right because you can't share something to no one, but you can share nothing to everyone. and that's why you can divide 0 but you can't divide by 0.

Which is exactly the same as saying it has no reciprocal.

So you don't have to divide!

yay!

3 It has no reciprocal

So you don't even dare solve for it!

Yes,and l hope you can keepingâ€¦â€¦

4 0! is equal to 1

The only thing I fail to see is how people forget this in binomial and Taylor series.

The proof for this is really twisted, had me confused in class

There's a such thing as 0 factorial?

Often overlooked, but yeah

5 When a number is raised to the power of 0, then the value of the number is 1

Gives me a relief when solving stressful math problems involving exponents

6 Trigonometric ratios are easy to solve for

But you can't have a cosecant or cotangent of zero, as it's undefined.

Like sin(0) = 0

7 It is the number of elements in a null set

Null sets make it all easier!

8 It is neither positive nor a negative integer

So no need to remember your signs!

Because zero is nothing!

9 In a circle path, the average velocity of an object is 0

This is why physics problems sometimes get easier! What a relief!

10 Cool numbers that are divisible by ten would not exist without 0

11 It is the origin and the middle of the cartesian plane

This is the best part of the cartesian plane

12 Everything starts from 0
13 Arrays start from 0
14 There are cool fictional characters named Zero

Like Lelouch's alter ego, Zero in Code Geass

15 Anything plus zero equals itself
