ZERO THE CATALYST.

I really like ZERO. It in itself has no value, it's even useless if it comes before someone. But if it stands behind some other number it increases the value of that number tremendously.
0 - is equal to zero.

01 - here the value of zero remains zero and the value of one remains one.

001 - here also the value of zero remains zero and the value of one remains one.

BUT ---

10 - here though the value of zero is zero, it has increased the value of digit one to ten.

100 - here also the value of zero remains zero in both the positions but the value of one has increased to hundred.

Likewise ---

1000 - in this number though the value of zero remains zero in all three positions but the value of one has increased to thousand.

A Catalyst is the thing which when added in a chemical reaction increases the speed of the reaction.

Zero works like a catalyst when it stands behind any other number. Though the Zero in itself has no value, it has the capacity to increase the value of any other number many folds. So i like this number.
