## anonymous 4 years ago is x to the 0 power = 1?

1. KingGeorge

In most cases. If $$x=0$$ then we have some problems.

2. Agentjamesbond007

Anything to the power of 0 is 1

ok thanks guys

4. KingGeorge

Agent is right, except for when $$x=0$$. Even complex numbers go to 1. $0^0$ however is indeterminate.

ok i believe you have earned a medal thanks

i think $$\infty ^0$$ is not defined is it @KingGeorge ?

@KingGeorge 's exception is an important one and yes @lgbasallote

8. KingGeorge

But infinity isn't a number (techincally), and we're assuming (at least I was) that x is a number.

9. anonymous

that is a good exception will keep in mind
