# Graph of x^x watch

1. When looking at the graph of x^x on a graphing tool such as Desmos it is an exponential curve that seems to only be defined for values of . However I can calculate that . Why isn't this point (and other similar points which can be calculated) represented on the graph?

I think it is due to the amount of cases that dont have a real solution for example (-1/2)^(-1/2). As there are so many undefined values, function is not continuous if x is less than 0. So u could graph certain integer but u couldnt draw a smooth function so that is why u dont see anything on desmos
