The zero exponent rule is defined as if \[a\] is any real number other than 0, then exponent a raised to power \[0\] is expressed as \[{{a}^{0}}=1\].

Work Step by Step

For example, consider \[a=5\] where \[5\] is greater than zero, then \[{{5}^{0}}=1\]. Hence, the zero exponent rule can be better understood with the help of the example.
