A friend of mine who was a maths teacher claims 0 is not a number but a place marker. Is he right or wrong?

We say 10 to the power of n or do we say 1 to the power of n-1?

What if we said 1 to the power of -n what occurs then?

Still further what if we predict the square root of such a number?

To the end that for an imaginary plane to exist is that not nothing?

Or are these question mere idle foolishness of one who has too much time to think?

Therefore I am nothing since the questions asked mean nothing to anyone but me.

At least I am something to myself!
