Read the following instructions in order to complete this discussion, and review the
of how to
complete the math required for this assignment:
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).
Now let a = the one- or two-digit month number,
b = the
of the one- or two-digit day number, and
c = the two-digit year number.
(Our example: a = 3, b = -13, and c = 81
a = 11, b = -7, and c = 67)
Use the following algebraic expressions for parts 3-5 of the discussion:
Evaluate the three given expressions using the a, b, and c from your birth date.
Make sure that b
when you plug in the values
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.
