Any number to the zero power is 1.
Why? Because for ANY number N
N / N = 1 = N^1 * N*1 = N^0

Any number raised to the zero power is 1.
50,000^0 = 1.

Try seeing it this way.
X^3*X^3 = X^{33} = X^{0} but
X^3*X^3 = X^3/X3 = 1; therefore, it follows that X^{0} = 1

"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.
