The answer is nothing

    Pamela needs to go back to school. or is she making a joke?

    but re your response to her, what about dividing?

    i've had three previous wives. none quite made it to zero, but sometimes they may have been trying. yes, they were trying at times!

    as i was and continue to be! ! !

    So how did zero ever make it to one? How did nothing make it to something? (Report) Reply

    Zero is easily added to, (and subtracted from) but when multiplied by, results in oblivion

    Thank you my friend. I have fun with such short and seemingly obvious poems

    What a lovely number is zero! In fact it rules the base ten system. (Report) Reply

    Thanks to Arabic scholars.

    Ya sometimes our life - all that we had done - end up being a 'zero'.. Or maybe, it's just the time we spend after doing things that have nothing good for us - the end result is zero... A nice poem Kelly.. Thanks for sharing.. (Report) Reply

    A rather obvious mathematical statement, but intentionally left open to interpretation.
    Thanks, Souren
