# How do you simplify (x^2)^0 and write it using only positive exponents?

Jul 24, 2017

$1$

#### Explanation:

Recall:

Anything to the power of $0$ is equal to 1" "(0^0 is undefined.)

$\therefore {\left({x}^{2}\right)}^{0} = 1$

You could also first apply the law of raising a power to a power to simplify two indices to one.

${\left({x}^{2}\right)}^{0} = {x}^{0}$

${x}^{0} = 1$
