The choice is not “right”, it is merely nice. I actually think the "Calculus Teacher" response explains it most clearly why 0^0 is indeterminate (from continuity point of view). The "Mathematician" response simply says that 0^0 = 1 is a choice of convenience (and not a matter of correctness). Graph 3D  QPI  SolveSys
