^{0} is an indeterminate form, they mean that there are functions *f*(*x*) and *g*(*x*) such that *f*(*x*) approaches 0 and *g*(*x*) approaches 0 as *x* approaches 0, and that one must evaluate the limit of [*f*(*x*)]^{g(x)} as *x* approaches 0. But what if 0 is just a number? Then, we argue, the value is perfectly well-defined, contrary to what many texts say. In fact, 0^{0} = 1!
