If a is an odd number, b an even number, and c an odd number, which expression will always be equivalent to an odd number?
(1 a(bc) (3) ac(b)^1
(2) ac(b)^0 (4) ac(b)^2
We know that any number raised to zero = 1.
We also know that any number raised to 1 = the number itself.
SAMPLE:
100^0 = 1
100^1 = 100
QUESTIONS:
Can you explain THE MATH REAONS why the above is true?
Also, what is zero raised to zero?
What is 0 raised to a power other than zero, say, a negative or positive number?
