# How do you evaluate log_0 16?

Aug 7, 2016

There is no answer, it cannot be simplified or determined.

#### Explanation:

Written in log form, the question being asked is.
"To what power must 0 be raised to equal 16?"

Well obviously this is never going to happen.....

0 raised to any power (except 0 ) is always 0.

${0}^{0}$ is undefined.

${0}^{x} = 0 \text{ } x \ne 0$

${0}^{x} = 16$ has no solution.
