Evaluating Algebraic Expressions Read the following instructions in order to complete this discussion, and review theexampleof how to complete the math required for this assignment: 1.Write your birth date or the birth date of someone in your family as mm/dd/yy. (Example: March 13, 1981 is written 3/13/81, and November 7, 1967 is written 11/7/67). oNow let a = the one- or two-digit month number, ob = the negative of the one- or two-digit day number, and oc = the two-digit year number.(Our example: a = 3, b = -13, and c = 81 or a = 11, b = -7, and c = 66) 2.Use the following algebraic expressions for parts 4-6 of the discussion: ooo3.Evaluate the three given expressions using the a, b, and c from your birth date. Make sure that b is negative when you plug in the values4.After you have your math worked out on scratch paper, go back and verbally describe the steps you took to evaluate the expressions. Make sure to use each of the vocabulary words at least once in your writing.oDid you notice anything interesting about the results of and ? Was this coincidence or do you think there is a .
