    x = 0 because anything raised rto the 0 power is 1

    6^2=36 so 36 ^0 =1

    this is an indices property that anything raised to the power is 0

    If (60)x = 1, what are the possible values of x? Explain your answer.

    60x=1 x=1/60

    this 60 multiplied to x and that was 36^x

    Assuming you mean 60^x=1, that's exactly the same question.

    a. (6^2)^x = 1 b. 60^x = 1 These are the same problem with a different number in parentheses. If anything raised to the \(0\) power is 1, what does x have to be?

    So is both Part A and Part B have the same answer?

    there can not be such answers in exponents or can there?

    @Spring98 yes there can be. that's called a rational exponent, my guess is you'll get there shortly. You should use 60^x to indicate exponents @madhu.mukherjee.946 was asking you to clarify the question above.

    60x = 1 is different from 60^x = 1

    The right side of all these equations are 1. The exponents are all 0. What are you looking for in your questions, the exponent or the right side?|dw:1442594854616:dw|

    yes, that's what they're trying to get you to learn. It doesn't matter what the base is. Anything to the 0 is 1
