conceptual question about brackets

what does it mean when you put a zero around a base...for example: (Ba(OH)2)0. It shows this on the answer key for 12.25

I think they might be referring to the initial concentration of that molecule, in science an 0 can sometimes represent the initial value. I have the 7th not 6th edition so I can't refer to the exact question you are asking about but hopefully this makes sense!
