You are right; it is E.
I have neither met God, nor have I had great sex.
This is because I have just been granted admin rights! :done

To some degree of course. I can add new smiles and erase old ones. A cool job, isn't it?

from statement 1

(-1)^-1 = -1 & (-1)^3 = -1
&
(1)^1 = 1 & (1)^3 =1

therefore M = 1 or -1

from statment 2

[(-1)^3] = 1
&
[(1)^3] = 1

therefore M = 1 or -1

from both statements together we cannot say whether M =1 or -1

therefore answer is E

hope that helps

But [(-1)^3] = -1, does it not???

That simply leaves [(1)^3] = 1...so isn't statement 2 sufficient?

The trick is that (1) has THREE solutions! 1, -1, and 3 :boxer2

I think we 've decided that 0^0 is undefined; I will ask the people in charge about it, but so far, the unanimous decision has been UNDEFINED
