There are two uses of zero which are both important but are different. One use of zero is as a number itself. The number zero is an abstract concept measuring the size of set with no elements in it. The second use of it is as an empty place indicator in our place-value number system. It is the notation. In this paper, we study a history of zero and the mistakes from a few earlier works in connection with some arithmetical operations involving the number zero.
