# 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**

Um...

Well, true. - **Bammer73**

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

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 - **styLIShT**

I love 0.-WillowChance

*2*

**Anything divided by it is undefined**

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

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**

There's a such thing as 0 factorial?

Who uses an! in maths lol.

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

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

*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. - **PositronWildhawk**

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**

Because zero is nothing!

So no need to remember your signs!

*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**

### The Contenders

*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**
