great, but how about multipling with 0 (e.g. 103X120??)
also 99X99 seems so dizzy...

#3 Pretty simple really. I had no idea but running a simple 10x10 example made it clear.

Draw lines as you would normally for each digit space. For 0, make a single line but mark it in some way (I made it look squiggly).

Count the dots as you would normally but only for the straight lines. If any dots are touching the squiggly lines, disregard them completely.

Ta-dah!

For the 10x10 example it's like that:

left: 1 intersection, both straight lines = 1
mid: 2 intersections, both touching the squiggly line = 0 + 0 = 0
right: 1 intersection, both lines are squiggly = 0
