Why is \(0 \times 0 \) not \(\text{undefined}\)? How can we multiply nothing to nothing?

    \(0 \times 1\), on the other hand, can be calculated by adding 0 to itself once, which leaves 0. Same for all other \(0 \times n\) where \(n\) is not zero.

    There still can be mathematical fallacy in any proof, @apple-pi.
