What does the number 0 mean in math? It stands for the number of items that are not included in a set. For example, if you have 5 apples and 0 oranges, then there are no oranges. In fact, the number zero is actually called “zero.” But why is it called that? Zero was originally written as an Arabic numeral to represent nothingness. Zero is also the sum of all numbers, which can be written as 0 + (n). What does it mean for something to be “nothing”? It’s not a number because there are things around that you could count. Zero is more than nothing: zero means everything and anything.

An integer, also known as a whole number or natural number, is any real number that can be written without the use of fractions. We call these numbers “whole” because they start at 0 and go up to infinity (∞).

A fraction has something in common with an integer: it represents a set amount part-to-a-whole. The difference between fractions and integers is how many parts you are measuring out; while one side of an equation will always represent whole units—in this case integers—the other does not have to be equal if we’re talking about rational numbers. It’s rather like when we divide two blocks into thirds so the top block would be called “one third” meaning that it is only one of three equal parts. The number 0 stands for “nothing.” Sometimes when we divide, the answer will be zero. Zero cannot really be written as anything other than itself because there are no numbers after it (which would represent a set amount). The word “zero” comes from an Arabic numeral; in Hindu-Arabic numerals this symbol represented nothing more than a placeholder because it was easier to write and not just something like “O”. It’s worth mentioning that Hindus had their own system of writing which made use of symbols similar to our current decimal digits: Brahmi Numerals! In Sanskrit these symbols were called Shunya or shunyam meaning void or empty space.
