Comrade answered Monday September 1 2008, 5:40 pm:
This is a bit of uncertain terratory in mathematics. I'm leaning towards 1, as it's cleaner and brings up less questions.

In any case, it's not 0. If it's not 1, it's "undefined".

Chances are, when the upstart new-age hippy mathematicians stop complaining, it will be offcially defined as 0^0=1.

I've always been told that anything to the "zeroth" power was 1.

But then again, zero time zero ZERO times is a lot to wrap your mind around, so maybe "undefined" is a better answer.

Ask your teacher which answer they prefer.
