You are NOT ONE, that is zero.

Take away one, it is the same number

NO-ONE, that is zero persons.

Take away two, it is the same number

NONE

Take away three it is another number

ONE

Take away four, back to the original number

NO (as in "I have no/not one ...")

Take away five, it is the same number

O or oh, looks like a zero and is used for zero when spelling e.g. phone numbers.
