- Zero to the zero power - Is $0^0=1$? 14 answers
I have done a lot of math so far, but I never stumbled on something this simple and yet mind boggling. Can someone tell me why $0^0$ equals $1$? I always knew that everything raised to a power of $0$ is $1$, but I never thought of the zero case itself.
I guess it's not the biggest problem in math, but I would like to have a good argument about why a $0$ can be turned into a $1$?
