Our 5th grade teacher was older and used the old fashioned word “naught” for zero. Just another pun.

It’s ought the is no “n”
Do you mean that the correct would is ought, not naught? Because I might be misremembering.
I find myself using the word ‘nought’ more than zero!
Hey. I just got it!!
I’ve always heard, read and used the word as 'nothing" or 'does not happen" as in Come to naught not zero…though I understand that is an American term, whereas the nothing term is old English…
naught n.noun Nonexistence; nothingness. The figure 0; a cipher; a zero. pron.pronoun Nothing. All their work was for naught. adj.adjective Nonexistent. Insignificant.
Now I don’t have it again.
Actually I saw the original Apollo space capsule in The Smithsonian in Washington DC. Those astronauts had to be tiny to fit in that thing.
