You should leave box 9a blank - do not put in the 0%.  

This is true of most entries in the program - unless it specifically says to enter a 0 in the program, you should leave any zero items as blanks.  If you enter the 0%, for this box, the program reads it as a value and wants to have a value greater than 0.01%.
