I always learned this in math, but never really questioned it.
why does [tex] n^0=1 [/tex]

Alright, first you know [itex]x=x^1[/itex] and [itex]x^1x^1=x^{1+1}=x^2[/itex], right? And in general, [itex]x^ax^b=x^{a+b}[/itex] when a and b are greater than or equal to one. So why not define [itex]x^0[/itex] so that this is true even if a or b is zero? If this is the case thenUniverse_Man said:I always learned this in math, but never really questioned it.
