Is a number raised to the power of zero equal to 1?
I have just learnt about negative powers and if I understand correctly this is what I would expect power of zero to mean. Lara xx

Yes, that is correct

wumpus answers:


The only oddity is when you consider 0 to the power of 0.

Some consider this to be 1, others believe it should be zero.

Most calculators will give you the value 1.

There are good justifications for either position.

I agree with both siasl74 and wumpus because my algebra book has been talking about just that thing lately. And it says any number to the power of zero equals one. x^0=1
