I don't care what anyone says about it, zero is zero.....it's an entirely different entity in the number game....I mean, it sort of doesn't even exist....if you add or subtract zero from anything it does nothing.....and somehow when you multiply a number by zero you end up with zero, which is kind of odd, I mean, did zero just murder the other number and bury it in the woods behind it's house?? how does the other number just magically disappear?? if anything, when multiplying by zero the sum should again just remain the same as if adding or subtracting......and the real kicker with zero is that it can't be used in division at all, no one has figured out an explanation for how zero fits into the house of dividing.......so again, I say, zero is it's own entity, neither odd or even, it just IS.....
Zero is an even number (it's parity, quality of the integer). Being even or odd...is even. Fits the definition of an "even number" An integer ie multiples of 2, as a result zero shares all the characteristics-even numbers. 0 is divisible by 2, 0 is surrounded by both sides by odd numbers the sum of the integer (0) with itself, and a set of zero objects can split into equal parts. No matter how you sum it up zero is an even number. Since you can't multiply zero to any number, anything you multiply zero by is 0.
i think of it like nobody came to school today. so their is a partner for that nothing but at the same time there is no partner. but the reason when you multiply 0 by any # is because when you multiply nothing by something you are going to get nothing out of it. and you cant divid nothing. if you want to know why math is so confusing you should really ask why did we have to make math so hard. -Kelly
imagine this you have a scale you take a 2 and split it and put a 1 on each side it balanced! now take another scale take a 1 you can exactly split it as a whole number its un balanced on the scale! now take a zero .... you dont really have anything in your hand its zero nothing the scale is still balanced!
