# What is the answer of zero to the power of 2?

We are going to solve the question by using the multiplication rule of exponents.

## Answer: The answer of zero to the power of 2 is zero (0).

Let's use rules of exponents step by step.

**Explanation:**

We have given, zero to the power of 2 i.e., 0^{2}

The rules for exponentiation states that if y is a positive integer and x is any real number, then x^{y} can be represented as:

x^{y }= x × x × … × x (y times)

Hence, zero to the power of 2 can be written as 0^{2}.

Where 2 is the power, whereas 0 is called the base of an expression.

Therefore, 0^{2}^{ }= 0
