    In most cases. If \(x=0\) then we have some problems.

    Agent is right, except for when \(x=0\). Even complex numbers go to 1. \[0^0\] however is indeterminate.

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

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