# Multiplication Table of 0

Repeated addition by 0 means the multiplication table of 0.

(i) When 4 fruit-baskets of zero fruits each.

By repeated addition we can show 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 = 0

Thus, zero added with any number of 0’s is always a zero.

Then, zero 4 times or 4 zero’s

4 × 0 = 0,

Thus, 0 multiplied by any number is always zero

Therefore, there are 0 fruits.

(ii) When 7 packs each having zero crayons.

By repeated addition we can show 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 = 0

Then, zero 7 times or 7 zero’s

7 × 0 = 0,

Therefore, there are 0 crayons.

We will learn how to use the number line for counting the multiplication table of 0.

(i) Start at 0. Hop 0, five times. Stop at 0.

5 zero’s are 0         5 × 0 = 0

(ii) Start at 0. Hop 0, eight times.

Stop at ____. Thus, it will be 0

8 zero’s are 0        8 × 0 = 0

(iii) Start at 0. Hop 0, twelve times.

Stop at ____. Thus, it will be 0

12 zero’s are 0        12 × 0 = 0

Note: In case of 0 times table while representing it on a number line we start at 0 and whatever times we hop we stop at 0. Thus, the start and the end point is always same i.e. 0.

How to read and write the table of 0?

The above chart will help us to read and write the 0 times table.

 Read 1 zero is 0 2 zero’s are 0 3 zero’s are 0 4 zero’s are 0 5 zero’s are 0 6 zero’s are 0 7 zero’s are 0 8 zero’s are 0 9 zero’s are 0 10 zero’s are 0 11 zero’s are 0 12 zero’s are 0 Write 1 × 0 = 0 2 × 0 = 0 3 × 0 = 0 4 × 0 = 0 5 × 0 = 0 6 × 0 = 0 7 × 0 = 0 8 × 0 = 0 9 × 0 = 0 10 × 0 = 0 11 × 0 = 0 12 × 0 = 0

Now we will learn how to do forward counting and backward counting by 0’s.

Forward counting by 0’s: 0, since 0 added to 0 is always a zero.

Backward counting by 0’s: 0, since 0 subtracted from 0 is always a zero.
