Is it zeros or zeroes? And, are there other words that follow the pattern?

    The plural of 'zero' can be either 'zeros' or 'zeroes'. Both are correct.

    Like the other posters said, the actual number 0 is singular, but when counting digits, for example, you use one of the plural forms:

    Ex: The number 1,000,000 has a one followed by six zeros.

    Ex: The number 1,000,000 has a one followed by six zeroes.

    Either one is correct.

    Because the value of '0' isn't a SINGLE quantity; it isn't '1' I second jfcruzr It would [almost] make more sense if you were only able to possess 1 apple and never more than 1. Then when you lose it, you can say, "I have no apple." But saying "no" or "zero" leaves it open to any amount that you could have had previously.

    When talking about total value, zero canot be plural. If you are using it as a noun, as in.. "The Zeroes left the arena." It is Zeroes

    Noughts is the plural for nought, so one would assume that it would be zeros for zero..
