If the product of 2 whole numbers is zero, then one of them is definitely zero. For example, 0×2=0 and 17×0=0 If the product of 2 whole numbers is zero, then both of them may be zero. 0×0=0 However, 2×3=6 (Since numbers to be multiplied are not equal to zero, the result of the product will also be non-zero)
