Evaluate negative two to the power of zero plus 𝐶 to the power of zero, where 𝐶 is a constant.

We know that when we raise any constant to the power of zero, we get an answer of one. This means that negative two to the power of zero is equal to one, and 𝐶 to the power of zero is also equal to one. Negative two to the power of zero plus 𝐶 to the power of zero is, therefore, equal to one plus one. The value of the expression is, therefore, equal to two.
