How to express 5 to the power of 0?
Answer: 5 to the power of 0 can be expressed as 50 = 1.
Let us proceed step by step.
The two important terms used frequently in exponents are base and powers.
To find 5 to the power of 0, we can write it in exponent form as 50, where 5 is base and 0 is power. Power should always be written on top of the base.
Here we observe that 50 is in a0 format so by using the exponent rule we can say that 50 = 1. [ a0 = 1, where a is any number except 0.]
We can also say that anything to the power 0 is equal to 1.
Therefore, 5 to the power of 0 can be expressed as 50 = 1.
