# If the product of two whole numbers is zero, can we say that one or both of them will be zero? Justify through examples.

Natural numbers refer to a set of positive integers and on the other hand, natural numbers along with zero (0) form a set, referred to as whole numbers.

## Answer: This is statement is true and justified using the examples shown below.

We will justify the statement using examples.

**Explanation:**

Example 1: The product of 3 and 0 is 0.

3 × 0 = 0 × 3 = 0

Example 2: The product of 0 and 0 is 0.

0 × 0 = 0

### Therefore, if the product of two whole numbers is zero, then either one or both of them will be zero. This is justified by using examples.
