so why is 0/0 undefined; but 0! is defined, yet 0^0 is undefined ?? is my question. why do we define indeterminate forms for some aspects and not others?

30. estudier

Convenience.

31. amistre64

thats what i thought :) $\frac{d}{dx}(x) = 1x^0$ is considered a special case becasue its tabboo to have x^0

32. estudier

I didn't know that, I would have probably said it was 1 if asked.

33. amistre64

me too
