In calculus and other branches of mathematical analysis, an indeterminate form is an algebraic expression obtained in the context of limits. Limits involving algebraic operations are often performed by replacing subexpressions by their limits; if the expression obtained after this substitution does not give enough information to determine the original limit, it is known as an indeterminate form. The indeterminate forms include 0^0, 0/0, 1^∞, ∞−∞,∞/∞, 0 × ∞, and ∞/0.........so it's also a indeterminate form you have given....

0^0 = 0^(m-m) = 0^(m) . 0^(-m) ....
now as, 0^(-m) = 1 / 0 which is undefined...
so 0^0 = undefined .....well first I tried to prove it like this but then I found that it wasn't a good proof as it had contradictions . :(

easy to proof.
imagine that the exponent is absolutely like an element of carbon molecule.
exponent is like a box that contain something, copy the box and paste then imagine that they will combine and has more energy, it will be two thing that are same like x*x in mathematic.

how about x^0?

so easy.
it means that there are no element, like an empty box.
because the box still present in universe, it mean there must be a symbol to represent it, that is the 1 or one.

–
0^0 is neither 1 nor indeterminate, it is undefined...
there is a difference between indeterminate and undefined.
e.g.
app.0/app.0 is indeterminate where as 0/0 is undefined
similarly, 0^0 is undefined as 0^0 = e^(0log0) where log 0 is undefined, but (app. 0)^app.0 is indeterminate whose value is 1...if both functions which are approaching 0 used in (app0)^app0 are the same.
if both functions are x.
lim (x app0) x^x can be found by equating it to e^xlogx where if xapp. 0 xlogx approaches 0[this can be found by using LH rule] and hence x^x approaches 1(as e^0 = 1)

it is indeterminate form in chapter limits....

Log in to reply

but mathematicians prove through limits that it it comes to 1?

ok......can u xplain me how?

well someone can give me the clear proof of any number raised to 0 is 1.

Log in to reply

yes we can prove it by log theorem? take log and calculate.

0^0=0/0-------------not defined

Log in to reply

look at this.

4^2 = 16

4^1 = 4

4^0 = 1

why 4^0 = 1?

easy to proof. imagine that the exponent is absolutely like an element of carbon molecule. exponent is like a box that contain something, copy the box and paste then imagine that they will combine and has more energy, it will be two thing that are same like x*x in mathematic.

so easy. it means that there are no element, like an empty box. because the box still present in universe, it mean there must be a symbol to represent it, that is the 1 or one.

If 0^0=1 what's the proof and if 0^0= undefined what's the proof ???

Log in to reply

really nice question....... i think so it is undefined.

Log in to reply

I agree with that. You can easily prove that it is an indeterminate form in mathematics,

Log in to reply

in laws of exponent they never mention that base a is not equal to 0

Log in to reply

undefined. bt nt equal 2 1.

Log in to reply

The way I was taught, even though 0^0 is indeterminate, mathematicians will consider it to be 1.

Log in to reply

considering is different thing...sometimes in physics also we consider that 1/0 = infinity...but that is wrong.. 0^0 is undefined

Log in to reply

it should be zero..

Log in to reply

But many take it to be 1.
