Undefined.
For example, 2 squared is 4.
2 times 2.
2 cubed, 8, 2 times 2 times 2.
2 to the 4th, 16, 2 times 2 times 2 times 2.
2 to the first, 2 divided by 2.
Like this:
2^4 = 2*2*2*2 = 16
2^3 = 2*2*2 = 8
2^2 = 2*2 = 4
2^1 = 2 = 2
It starts going backwards with division.
2^0 = 2÷2 = 1
2^-1 = 2÷2÷2 = 1/2
2^-2 = 2÷2÷2÷2 = 1/4
2^-3 = 2÷2÷2÷2÷2 = 1/8
...
So,
4^0 = 4÷4 = 1
3^0 = 3÷3 = 1
2^0 = 2÷2 = 1
1^0 = 1÷1 = 1
0^0 = 0÷0 = undefined,
because you can't divide by 0

it is infinity because 0*0=0 and 0+0=0 so this could go on indefinitely and so therefore either 0 or infinity or undefined or 1, take your pick

For example, 2 squared is 4.

2 times 2.

2 cubed, 8, 2 times 2 times 2.

2 to the 4th, 16, 2 times 2 times 2 times 2.

2 to the first, 2 divided by 2.

Like this:

2^4 = 2*2*2*2 = 16

2^3 = 2*2*2 = 8

2^2 = 2*2 = 4

2^1 = 2 = 2

It starts going backwards with division.

2^0 = 2÷2 = 1

2^-1 = 2÷2÷2 = 1/2

2^-2 = 2÷2÷2÷2 = 1/4

2^-3 = 2÷2÷2÷2÷2 = 1/8

...

So,

4^0 = 4÷4 = 1

3^0 = 3÷3 = 1

2^0 = 2÷2 = 1

1^0 = 1÷1 = 1

0^0 = 0÷0 = undefined,

because you can't divide by 0
