Any proper calculator, or math professor, or anyone else that's got a math brain will inform you of that fact. However, my calculator tells me you can't raise 0 by the power of 0, and throws an error. all other numbers raised to 0, gives 1. (realizing later that 0^0 will result in a division by 0 in the process, it's undefined) y^0 = y^(x-x) = y^x/y^x = 1 for any y - except 0 --- May Peace and love be yours, Poohbear/Brendan Keyport poohbear@poohbear.net (Admin) ===================END FORWARDED MESSAGE=================== --- May Peace and love be yours, Poohbear/Brendan Keyport poohbear@poohbear.net (Admin) ---- Via the amsat-bb mailing list at AMSAT.ORG courtesy of AMSAT-NA.
