Why does y^0 = 1?

 

a) Because y1 multiplied by y = 1

 

b) Because y-1 multiplied by y = 1

 

c) Because y1 divided by y = 1

 

d) Because y-1 divided by y = 1

 

 

Isn't this an easy problem? Are they allowing me to pick only one answer even though both are correct?

well i think the answer is C bc u normally learn about positive exponents and then u learn about 0 and the negatives. But they should both be true.

Thank you. I've been working on exponents for a long time. I guess I'll just try one and see what happens.
