Checking -3:
 -------------------------------------- -3 | 4 37 6 -27 | -12 -75 207 4 25 -69 180

Since the last entry in the last row is NOT a 0, -3 is NOT a zero

================================================================

Checking 5:

 -------------------------------------- 5 | 4 37 6 -27 | 20 285 1455 4 57 291 1428

Since the last entry in the last row is NOT a 0, 5 is NOT a zero

================================================================

Checking -8:

 -------------------------------------- -8 | 4 37 6 -27 | -32 -40 272 4 5 -34 245

Since the last entry in the last row is NOT a 0, -8 is NOT a zero
