I will just say... OF COURSE.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 1/26/04 - 3:31:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
this question is making me go cross eyed.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 1/26/04 - 3:34:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 1/26/04 - 3:36:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
Technically, zero is a theory. Think about it, does anything actually equal zero? Even 1 - 1... doesn't the memory of the ones constitute something more than zero?
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 1/26/04 - 4:02:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes. i should know, i was a math major.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 1/26/04 - 4:03:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
Whether its a theory or not its still countable and feasable. If you wanted to get into that crap then decimals are really just theories.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 1/26/04 - 4:13:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 1/27/04 - 1:28:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
Numbers just symbolize amounts, ergo the zero just symbolizes the amount nothing.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 1/27/04 - 2:08:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
0 is as much a number as 1 through 9 are.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 1/27/04 - 4:27:32 AM EST (GMT-5)
That's a great anser deshep.

Yes I'd say, as a member of the set of real numbers, it's a number. It's represented by a point on a number line.

17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 1/29/04 - 7:51:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
of course it is
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 2/2/04 - 11:57:31 AM EST (GMT-5)
It's a number represening the absence of all units.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 2/3/04 - 2:47:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, zero is a number. It represents no units.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 2/3/04 - 2:51:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, and the concept of zero is no more abstract than the concept of one or two, or of black and white being colors.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 2/3/04 - 3:22:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
^ I was just about to say something about black and white being colors. hehe You beat me to it!
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 2/3/04 - 4:01:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
Of course it's a number. It may not be a counting number in America, but in France it is.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 2/3/04 - 4:05:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
no, zero is a letter.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 2/3/04 - 5:08:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's an integer, and as much as any number truly exists, as opposed to simply being a theoretical adjective to describe quantity (does "a lot of" or "a few of" exist, free of "geese" or some other noun?), then yes, zero is a number, too.
17 yrs ago - Wednesday 2/4/04 - 4:26:15 AM EST (GMT-5)
^ isn't zero four letters, squiggles?
17 yrs ago - Wednesday 2/4/04 - 4:31:46 AM EST (GMT-5)
a lot of people say that zero, like infinity, is not a number.
17 yrs ago - Wednesday 2/4/04 - 4:57:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
Infinity isn't a number. It's something greater than any number that could be assigned to it.

and who does say that it's not a number?

17 yrs ago - Wednesday 2/4/04 - 4:59:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, it's actually an O that was sat on by a B, thus giving it that shape. It went over to the numbers, and they adopted it.

i dont know, some people do though, because it doesnt follow all the correct rules of a normal number. what is zero divided by zero?
17 yrs ago - Wednesday 2/4/04 - 5:39:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
It's true you can't divide by zero, but lots of numbers don't follow 'normal' rules. Primes don't follow the same rules as non-primes, irrational numbers don't follow the same rules as rationals, and negative numbers don't follow the same rules as positives.

Numbers are wierd like that. For example, the other numbers are all scared of seven.
Because seven ate nine.
