    undefined. 0/0=?

    ``` Prove that 0 to the 0 power is undefined. ``` Proof by contradiction. By definition, \(0^n = 0\). By definition, \(x^0 = 0\). But the two definitions contradict at \(x=0\) and \(n = 0\).

    Another one: Suppose that \(0^0 = x\). Then \(\log _ 0x = 0\). But there are infinite such values, so \(0^0\) does not exist.

    x^0 = x^(n-n) = x^n /x^n so it'll be undefined whenever denominator is 0.
