What's a Special Number?

3. mathslover

Good question estudier, @jiteshmeghwal9 in what sense?

4. jiteshmeghwal9

It has some kind of spaciality @estudier

5. jiteshmeghwal9

speciality *

6. jiteshmeghwal9

& @mathslover

7. estudier

Special how?

10. jiteshmeghwal9

11. jiteshmeghwal9

I m very innocent ^_^ .

12. estudier

Not positive, not negative

13. mathslover

lol are you talking about any news in hindi news paper? @jiteshmeghwal9

14. estudier

Not prime not composite

15. estudier

0! = 1

16. estudier

You cannot divide by 0

' @mathslover Bhaiya mere ghar mein akhbar hi nahin aata .'

18. mathslover

haha fir to dimaag lagana padhega mujhe :(

19. jiteshmeghwal9

Hindi toh bahut door ki baat hai

Zero is technically not a number, but it is special because it allows several things to be done with math that could not be done without it. If zero represents nothing, negative integers can be used to express quantities less than nothing. Also, our number system is based on ten, and the zero to the right of a one means ten and no more. A two and a zero mean twenty and no more, and on and on. @jiteshmeghwal9 ok is it clear??

21. Harkirat

By itself zero does not have any value but when placed after another digit it increases the value of that digit 10 folds, 100 folds etc. depending on how many zeros are placed after the digit........

23. jiteshmeghwal9

well @estudier & others have given many specialties :)

24. mayankdevnani

oh!! sry...

So one from my side : $\large{a^0=1}$

27. siddhantsharan

http://www.siam.org/pdf/news/669.pdf An entire paper on it.

28. mathslover

$\large{a*0 = 0 }$ $\large{a/0 = intermediate}$

29. estudier

Zeroth order logic

30. mathslover

7.000000 has no value but 700000000 has a value.

31. jiteshmeghwal9

Ok ! total conclusion ?

32. estudier

Infinity's twin???

33. estudier

I blame the parents....

34. mathslover

wait m typing

35. Mikael

Zero (as pointed above) has several algebraic meanings of extraordinary nature 1)Neutral to addition 2)annihilating to multiplication I should add several ANALYSIS specials 1) Infintisemal calculus in some sense is ALL AROUND ZERO 2) Infinity is the other compactification of real line (kind of zero)

36. mathslover

Here we go: $\huge{\color{blue}{\textbf{I}}\color{green}{\mathbb{N}}\color{grey}{\mathsf{D}}\color{orange}{\mathsf{I}}\color{brown}{\text{A}}}$

37. mathslover

India gave the number zero, that's the specialty . :)

38. estudier

Analysts live in 0,1 (it's the only place that will take them)

39. jiteshmeghwal9

my conclusion is that it doesn't have a value but this makes other values.

40. mathslover

mentioned above by me : 7.000000 and 70000 , spot the difference.

41. estudier

0 in binary is 0000

42. jiteshmeghwal9

$\Huge{\color{gold}{\star \star \star}\color{red}{\cal{I}\color{green}{N}\color{blue}{D}\color{purple}{I}\color{Violet}{A}}}$

43. Mikael

Crore - 10000 = that

44. jiteshmeghwal9

How is my $$\Huge{\color{Red}{LaTeX}}$$?

45. Mikael

too loud, man, too loud

46. mathslover

better than mine :)

47. jiteshmeghwal9

Thanx !

48. Gowthaman

It makes number system so simple and meaningful.
