The value 0^0

We all no mathematics make sense to a great deal in our lives either we see them or not. Is there any use or application of 0^0?Or is it as undefined makes no real sense in our lives?

look at this.

4^2 = 16

4^1 = 4

4^0 = 1

why 4^0 = 1?

easy to proof. imagine that the exponen is absolutely like an element of carbon molecule. exponen 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.

this is repost from my post in this link https://brilliant.org/discussions/thread/is-001-and-can-be-applied-everywhere-in-mathematic/
