The concept of zero as a number and not merely a symbol or an empty space for separation is attributed to India, where, by the 9th century AD, practical calculations were carried out using zero, which was treated like any other number, even in case of division.

The concept of zero as a number and not merely a symbol or an empty space for separation is attributed to India, where, by the 9th century AD, practical calculations were carried out using zero, which was treated like any other number, even in case of division. The Indian scholar Pingala, of 2nd century BC or earlier, used binary numbers in the form of short and long syllables (the latter equal in length to two short syllables), making it similar to Morse code. In his Chandah-sutras (prosody sutras), dated to 3rd or 2nd century BCE, Pingala used the Sanskrit word ??nya explicitly to refer to zero. This is so far the oldest known use of ??nya to mean zero in India. The fourth Pingala sutra offers a way to accurately calculate large metric exponentiation, of the type (2)n, efficiently with less number of steps. The earliest text to use a decimal place-value system, including a zero, is the Jain text from India entitled the Lokavibh?ga, dated 458 AD, where ??nya ("void" or "empty") was employed for this purpose. The first known use of special glyphs for the decimal digits that includes the indubitable appearance of a symbol for the digit zero, a small circle, appears on a stone inscription found at the Chaturbhuja Temple at Gwalior in India, dated 876 AD. There are many documents on copper plates, with the same small o in them, dated back as far as the sixth century AD, but their authenticity may be doubted. In 498 AD, Indian mathematician and astronomer Aryabhata stated that "sth?n?t sth?na? da?agu?a? sy?t;" i.e., "from place to place each is ten times the preceding," which is the origin of the modern decimal-based place value notation. read less

VVL says right. Brahmagupta did a credible job by showing the applications.
