# How do you simplify (5xy)^0?

Anything taken to the power 0 equals 1, so we have ${\left(5 x y\right)}^{0} = 1$

#### Explanation:

The key here is to work this through with PEMDAS:

Parentheses
Exponents
Multiplication
Division
${\left(5 x y\right)}^{0}$
Looking at the expression, we have a value $\left(5 x y\right)$ being taken to the 0 power. Anything taken to the 0 power is equal to 1, so the final answer here is
${\left(5 x y\right)}^{0} = 1$
