Okay to start I can understand where pro is coming from as yes math is a complex subject and can be difficult to understand and know how everything works as it does. So let"s start with multiplication and how it works so let"s do 3*5=15 the way this works is we have three groups of five dots and thus we have 15 as three groups of five dots adds up to 15. With that there let"s do 3*0=0 so if we use the same process as before with zero groups of three dots as you can possibly have three dots but you don"t have any groups of three thus since as you said as before zero means nothing aka zero and since you don"t have any groups of three you can"t have three you have zero; you never lose three as you never had three of anything to begin with thus you don"t have a place holder of three as you don"t have anything to hold that place.
Oh no I'm sorry yesterday my grandmother passed away so I was busy with that more than this debate so I'm sorry for my forfit. But continuing with this debate your second round is illogical and has no point for this debate as we are debating that 3*0=3 not zero we are not debating division and thus I do not have a rebuttle as your last argument does not pertain to this debate and hope nest rould you well bring an argument that pertains to this debate.
