 Multiplying by Zero,
a selection of answers from the Dr. Math archives.
 Multiplying by 0
 Why, when multiplying any number by 0, do you get 0?
 Zero and the Commutative Property
of Multiplication
 If we take 0x1, we get 0, and if we take 0x2, we still get 0, for
it is still 0+0+0. But if we do it the other way round, why must it
still be 0, if any number to the power of 0 = 1?
 Multiplying by Zero
 Why does any number times zero equal zero?
 Multiplying by Zero
 I know that zero's value is nothing, but why is it that it turns other
numbers that clearly have a greater value to zero when multiplied?
 Paradox in the Zero Power
 Why does the product of multiplying a number by itself zero times equal 1?
 And see the Dr. Math FAQ:
 0 to 0 power
 What is 0 to the 0 power?
 0! = 1
 Why does 0! = 1?
