# How do you write xy^0 using only positive exponents?

$x \left(1\right) = x$

#### Explanation:

We start with $x {y}^{0}$. What this says is, using PEDMAS, "take y to the power of 0, then multiply by x".

So let's do that. Keep in mind that anything to the power of 0 is 1, so:

${y}^{0} = 1$

Now let's multiply by x:

$x \left(1\right) = x$
