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

6^2=36 so 36 ^0 =1

Can you also help me with this one plz? this is part B.
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
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.
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
60x=1 x=1/60
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
this 60 multiplied to x and that was 36^x
anonymous
  • anonymous
Assuming you mean 60^x=1, that's exactly the same question.
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
@Spring98
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
is it 60^x 0r 60 x
Spring98
  • Spring98
It is not the same question how do i do part B?
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
what is part b?
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
60x=1 x=1/60

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?
Spring98
  • Spring98
So is both Part A and Part B have the same answer?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes.
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
nope
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
part is (60)x=1 x=1/60
Spring98
  • Spring98
there can not be such answers in exponents or can there?
anonymous
  • anonymous
@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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
60x = 1 is different from 60^x = 1
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
thats what i'm saying
Spring98
  • Spring98
sdo both the answers are 1 then right?

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|

  • Spring98
what is Part B answer????
anonymous
  • anonymous
I don't give answers. You've gotten 3 explanations for this problem. What are you confused about?
Spring98
  • Spring98
i can't find the solution
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1442595279818:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
so what does x have to be?
Spring98
  • Spring98
0?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes!!!
Spring98
  • Spring98
wait but both the answers are going to be 0 right?
madhu.mukherjee.946
  • madhu.mukherjee.946
yeah
anonymous
  • anonymous
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
