36^x = 0 Solve for x. I want to say no solution, but my math book says "be clever" so I'm thinking that isn't the answer.

    Anything to the 0 power is 1, except 0, but that is undefined...

    36^x is never 0

    x<2 is very close to zero

    it has a horizontal aymsptote as akshay said but it never touches the x-axis

    36^(any power) will be postive

    but the question has only two significant figures if this was a physics question the answer would be x<2 but because it is maths the is no solutions

    since this question is posted in the math section, i'm looking at it from a mathematical view

    i have no knowledge of physics and i think you mean x<-2 based on your graph because that is where it starts to get really close however, it only gets close but never touches the x-axis this is called a horizontal asymptote

    yeah i meant when x<-2
