I will be using my dad’s birthdate for this discussion, and it is March 24, 1938. I will be using the following integers in my work which are: A=3, B= - 24, and C=38. 1.) a 3 -b 3 (3) 3 – ( - 24) 3 (3x3x3 - 24x - 24x - 24) 27 – ( - 13824) 27 + 13824 = 13851 In the first problem there is variables a and b, with exponents of three on each. I used 3 for variable a, and used -24 for variable b. I multiplied the integers three times to give the exponents . When you minus a negative number it becomes a plus. I then took 27 and added it to 13824. Adding those two numbers together I got 13851. 2.) (a-b) (a 2 +ab+b 2 ) (3)-( - 24) ( (3) 2 + (3)(-24)+( - 24) 2 (3+24) (3x3) (3x - 24) ( - 24 x - 24) 27 (9 – 72 + 576) 27(513) = 13851 In the second problem there is variables a and b, with exponent a and b having 2 on each. I used 3 for variable a, and used -24 for variable b in each section. In the first part 3 minus negative 24 becomes a plus. Then I took the a integer 3 and times it twice (3x3). I took and multiplied the two integers (3 times -24). I squared the b integer, which is -24(-24 times -24). When you plus a negative it becomes a negative. I added the
