The Babylonians. After ancient mathematics started popping up in Egypt and Greece, the Babylonians invented the number zero so that they would not have to write out different symbols for every number containing a zero. Before, 1,409,876 was written out as 1,000 x 1,000 + 4,000 x 100 + 1,000 x 9 + 100 x 8 + 10 x 7 + 6. Whereas, with the zero invented, they could now write it as 1,409,876.
