Why does zero power is equal to one?

To divide a number raised to one power by the same number raised to a nother power, you subtract the powers; eg 5 cubed divided by 5 squared is 5 to the power (3 - 2) ie 5. If you divide 5 cubed by 5 cubed then you have 5 to the power (3 - 3) ie 0, but 5 cubed divided by 5 cubed is 1 hence 5 to the power zero is one. This calculation holds good for any non-zero number.

Why is a cube number called a cube number?

To calculate the volume of a cube, you use the third power of the length, so for example, if the length of an edge of a cube is 3" then the volume is 3x3x3 = 27 cubic inches. As a result, any time a number is raised to the third power, we can call it cubed, much as raising it to the second power is that number squared.
