## anonymous 3 years ago F(x)=3*5^x for x=0? Can someone explain to me how to solve this<3 thank you.

you mean replace $$x$$ by $$0$$? you get $F(0)=3\times 5^0=3\times 1=3$ because $$b^0=1$$

I'm honestly not sure, here the directions say compute the exact value of the function for other given x-value without using a calculator

3. anonymous

if it says $$x=0$$ then that answer is right

4. anonymous

Oh...but wait can you explain to me how the b^0=1? Because wouldn't the 5^0=0?

5. anonymous

Anything to the 0 power is 1

Okay thank you(:
