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


Given:

If the product of two whole numbers is zero, then  one or both of them will be zero.

To do: 

We have to find whether the given statement is true

Solution:

If the product of two whole numbers is zero, then at least one of them is zero.

For example:

$0 \times 5 = 0$

$7 \times 0 = 0$

If the product of two whole numbers is zero, then both of them may be zero.

For example:

$0 \times 0 = 0$

The given statement is true.

We can say that if the product of two whole numbers is zero, then  one or both of them will be zero.
