1. I will be using the following five vocabulary words for this discussion question a. Exponent b.integer c. variable d. lowest terms e. divisor 2. I’m using my mom's birthday for the exercise, and it’s august 8, 1979 and written as 8/8/79. I have these integers to use for my problem. a= 8 b= -8 c= 79 I will use those algebraic expressions for problems A through C in the assignment for parts 3–5 of the discussion. I will be using the algebraic expressions in A – C given in the assignment for parts 3 – 5 of the discussion. 3. a3– b3 This is the given expression with variables a and b and Exponent Of 3 on each of them 8^3−(−8)3. I have plugged in 8for variable a and -8 for variable b. 512– (-512) The integers were raised to the given exponents. 512+ 512 Minus a negative becomes a plus. Here is the final answer. 1,024 4.(a – b)(a2+ ab + b2) This is the given expression which also uses variables a and b
