Any nonzero real number to the power of zero is postive one. Common theoretical evaluations of 0^0 are zero and positive one. It is not evaluated by software, but it was not called an undefined term.

For a time the correct response was zero. I first agreed with this after thinking about fundamental physics of dynamic base arithmetic, but I noticed Google states otherwise.

After I asked around it seems an older text book described a contradiction to the evaluation of +1.

Code:

```
Simplification: x^a / x^b = x^(a - b)
Instantiation: 0^3 / 0^3 = 0^(3 - 3) = 0^0
```
