Zero is a number which signifies nothing, an empty set or a count whose value is nothing. It is exactly divisible by every number and is therefore an even number because it is divisible by two. With an infinite amount of factors, it is therefore not a prime number. But it’s not composite either because it is not a product of any prime number. Zero is known as the additive identity.
