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.
Let x = a number
Then x^(0) = 1....Wny is this the case?
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 you EASILY teach the above concepts in a classroom?
