Will any number to the power zero always give one? Can you please enlighten me? Also, please 2 to the power of 0, as an example. Thank you!
Will Any Number To The Power Zero Always Give One? 2 To The Power Of 0, For Example.
It’s similar to dividing a number by zero, any number or expression raised to the power of zero always gives one.
Raising something to a power greater than zero means you multiply the base x number together by whatever number is on its power (the one on top, the superscript)
2 to the power of 1 = 2
2 to the power of 2 = 2 x 2 = 4
2 to the power of 3 = 2 x 2 x 2 = 8
and so on.
So, what happens when you multiply anything by zero – is almost nothing, except 1 because of the exponent rule.
