Okay Rosala let's think about this.

 

FIRST: You tell me if you agree with these statements.  

 

$$\\10^8\div 10^3=10^{8-3}=10^5\qquad&(1)\\\\
\frac{10^9}{10^4}=10^{9-4}=10^5\qquad(2)\\\\$$

okay so

$$\\10^2\div 10^2=10^{2-2}=10^0\\\\
but\\\\
10^2\div 10^2=100\div 100=1\\\\
so\\
10^0=1\\\\
ALSO\\
\frac{10^3}{10^3}=\frac{1000}{1000}=1 $ But it also equals } 10^{3-3}=10^0\\\\
$ So again $ 10^0=1$$

Any real number raised to the power of 0 is 1   (except for 0 and infinity, infinity is not really a number anyway)
