### How should you simplify x0?

If that is x to the power 0, then it = 1, irrespective of the value of x. Consider for example x =4. x squared is 16. To get from x to the power 2 to x to the power 1, you divide by x, giving 4 to the power 1 = 4. Similarly, to get from x to the power 1 to x to the power 0, you divide by x, giving 4 to…

### Is -2 to the power of -3 the same as -2 x -2 x -2?

sorry if this is worded weirdly, im 11 so... -2 to the power of 3 is -2 x -2 x -2 anything to the 0th power is 1 then it becomes a fraction so like 2 to the -2 power is 1/2 to the 2nd power so 2 to the -3rd is 1/2 to the 3rd so 1/8 * * * * * A negative power is a reciprocal of the positive power. So (-2)-3…
