Zero is a number not an idea. If you have no pennies, that means you have zero percent of 100 pennies. If you have one penny, that means you have 1 percent of 100 pennies, or one dollar. Zero like any other number is an indicator of amount. Likewise percentage is also an indicator of an amount of the whole.
