I know that any number raised to the zero power is 1.

I also know that any number raised to the 1st power is the number itself.

Sample A:

Let x = a number

Then x^(0) = 1....Wny is this the case?

Sample B:

Let y = a number

Then y^(1) = y....Why is this the case?

Teachers never explain this in terms that students can understand.

How about you?

How would youteach the above concepts in a classroom?EASILY
