Can someone on this site explain to me why n^0=1? I've never understood it

Basically, limits. The graph of y=(n^1)x is a straight line, while the graph of y=(n^1/2)x is a curve that levels off as it gets larger. All exponential functions equal 1 at x=1, and as the exponent gets smaller the curve of the function levels off even more. 10^1/2 is greater than 10^1/4, which is greater than 10^1/8, and so on. As the exponent in the function y=(n^e)x gets smaller, it gets closer and closer to a horizontal line, still touching the point (1,1). So while it might not be intuitively possible to calculate n^0, it's pretty easy to see that lim(e->0) n^e=0.

Sorry for the mathiness.

Someone explain this to me.

Amazing, even the most obscure and brainy SMBC gets thumbed up, these can't be the same people that thumb up the same 40 tumblr screenshots to the front page every day. Either there's a brainy crowd I'm not aware of, or people are just pretending.

I don't do scienc or math good. How about a history discussion? I like history.

Y'ALL BETTER HOLD ON TO YOUR SEATS. MATHS IS GOING DOWN!!!:

- e^(iπ)+1=0 known as Euler's identity. It's considered by some as the most beautiful equation.
- e is a mathematical constant. It's approx. 2.718. It's the sum to infinity of 1/(n!) (1/1)+(1/(1*2))+(1/(1*2*3))+(1/(1*2*3*4)) ... and so on
- e^x can be written as the sum to infinity of this is where it gets hard to write it down ((x^(n-1)))/(n!) 1 + (x^1)/(1) + (x^2)/(1*2) + (x^3)/(1*2*3) etc.
- i is a number that doesn't exist but we use it in maths anyway because WE ENJOY CONFUSING PEOPLE. It is the sqrt(-1)
- Sub iπ as x for e^x 1 + ((iπ)^1)/(1) + ((iπ)^2)/2 + ((iπ)^3)/(6) etc.
- Because (i^2) = -1 we can change the equation above into 1 + iπ - (π^2)/2 - (i(π^3))/6 + (π^4)/24 etc.
- That **** up there is known to be the same as cos(π) + isin(π)
- cos(π) = 1 sin(π) = 0 meaning we can get rid of the i there and we're left with just 1

tl;dr When you sub iπ into the formula for e^x you end up with it turning into the same formula for cos(x)+isin(x) which turns out to be 1

My 8th grade Algebra 1 teacher, on the last day of school, she started the class by saying "for the next ten minutes I'm gonna blow your mind,"
then explained the whole concept of i^2=(-1)

it is kind of crazy.

I read that kind of math (got an A) just a few months ago, but not doing anything for 3 months drains your memories.

ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!
They can hear, and see what you're visually thinking. This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!

Asians hide their mind reading abilities by a lot of them having completely expressionless faces so they don't accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.

Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW THIS!!!!!

It's easy, cos(x) + isin(x) = e^(ix) thanks to power series expansions. So e^(i*pi) = cos(pi) + isin(pi) = -1 + i0 = -1.
