**0**(**zero**; BrE: or AmE: ) is both a number^{[1]}and the numerical digit used to represent that number in numerals. It fulfills a central role in mathematics as the additive identity of the integers, real numbers, and many other algebraic structures. As a digit, 0 is used as a placeholder in place value systems. In the English language, 0 may be called**zero**, nought or (US)**naught**, nil, or — in contexts where at least one adjacent digit distinguishes it from the letter "O" —**oh**or o**. Informal or slang terms for zero include**zilch and**zip**.*Ought*or*aught*() has also been used historically.^{[2]}
