[ntnodzrh] Exponentiation is different

"Every number in this paragraph is written in base 10.  10*10=100.  10-10=0. 10/10=1."

Of course all this still leaves ambiguous what base we are talking in (10 is always the way to write a base number in its own base.)  Also 10+10=20 in every base except binary.  Similarly 11*11=121.

The answer to 10^10 resolves ambiguity.
