1 and 0 are exponents though

4. Alex_Mattucci

anything to the zero power equals 1.

5. Nnesha

that's right or you can say x^{m} times x^n =x^{m+n} when we multiply same bases we should add their exponents

6. Alex_Mattucci

anything to the first power will just equal that number, in this case it is 5

7. Alex_Mattucci

so it is just 1 times 5

8. Nnesha

$\large\rm [x^m \times x^n=x^{m+n}$$\huge\rm 5^0 \times 5^1=5^{1+0}$ will get the same answer

9. Alex_Mattucci

yeah that works too
