**drwls**, Monday, August 4, 2008 at 12:03amIs the ^ supposed to represent that what follows is an exponent? You have exponents added on top of exponents.

Since the whole thing is raised to the zero power, the result is 1, no matter what x, y and z are.

A trick question, perhaps.

**Sunflower**, Monday, August 4, 2008 at 12:05amThis is what the professor gave use to do. Is there anyway you can so me how you got 1?

**drwls**, Monday, August 4, 2008 at 12:08amAny number to the zero power is 1.

Why? Because for ANY number N

N / N = 1 = N^1 * N*-1 = N^0

**DrBob222**, Monday, August 4, 2008 at 12:14amAny number raised to the zero power is 1.

50,000^0 = 1.

6,245^0 = 1

Try seeing it this way.

X^3*X^-3 = X^{3-3}= X^{0}but

X^3*X^-3 = X^3/X3 = 1; therefore, it follows that X^{0}= 1

**drwls**, Monday, August 4, 2008 at 9:24am"question 1" looks like two questions. The first one needs more parentheses to explain the order of operations. The second one cannot be solved becasue it contains two variables.
