Zero exponent theorem -Definition and examples.

The zero exponent theorem states the following: If b is any nonzero real number, then b0 = 1

In other words, any real number raised to zero power is equal to 1.

Examples

80 = 1

140 = 1

157899521141226590 = 1

(-5)0 = 1

(-3/4)0 = 1

The theorem can also apply to algebraic or numerical expressions.
Any numerical expression,or algebraic expression raised to the power of zero is equal to 1.

Examples

( x2 + 2x + -4 )0 = 1

[ ln(x + 2) ]0 = 1

[ (x + 4) / (2x - 6) ]0 = 1

Be careful!

-60 is not equal to 1. It is equal to -6

However, (-6)0 is equal to 1
