An equation involving x to the x 2000-07-22 From Joy Peter: I am joy, a teacher teaching Maths at the secondary level and while solving a sum came to this stage when i got xx (1 + log x) = 0, by which we can conclude that xx = 0 or 1 + log x = 0. If xx = 0, than what should be the value of x? I feel that the value of x should then be 0 (zero) but then how do I explain this to the students as we also know that anything to the power of 0 is 1 but here 0 raised to 0 is 1. If this is not defined then how do I explain this?Answered by Penny Nom.
