This may seem like a silly question but is zero a positive integer? I always thought so but have come accross a couple of posts implying otherwise. thanks in advance!

another important point that I got recently is that ZERO is a Multiple of any number

further to the above:

from one of the post (guess by giddi) on the forum:

0! = 1
0^0 is cannot be determined.
Zero is neither positive nor negative
Zero is even
k^0 = 1
Zero is divisible by every integer (except 0), Since remainder of 0/k = 0
Zero is a multiple of every integer. 0 = k*0
