    \[\huge \rm(2x)^0\] anything to the zero power is just = 1 \[\rm (Nnesha)^0 =1\]

    wait but how does that apply to the problem? then would part a be (6^2)^x=1 x would be 1? or 0?

    let's try \[(6^2)^1 = ??\] apply this exponent rule \[\huge\rm (X^m)^n = x^{ m \times n}\] \[(6^2)^0 = ???\]

    idk. im so lost. im doing a timed assignment. and I am so lost. can you show me the steps like work out the problem. so that I can understand what you are saying more clearly.

    anything to the 0 power is always going to be equal to one EXAMPLES \[(3x)^0 =1\]\[(34522)^0=1\]

    \(\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @magy33 wait but how does that apply to the problem? then would part a be (6^2)^x=1 x would be 1? or 0? \(\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}\) let x =1 \[(6^2)^1= 1\]is it right both sides are equal ??

    1? so x is 1 in both equations?

    yes 6^2 =36 and \[36\cancel{ = }1\] so x is not 1

    ok I got that but the question I am asking is for part b. PArt B is this: if (6^0)^x=1 , what are the possible values of x? I got part a already.

    yes because nothing multiplied by 0 is anything else but 0. 6^0=0. so what are the values. I got 5 minutes to turn this in.
