The variablesrepresented in the equation are aand band their exponentsof 3 on each of them. Since 7 is my birth month that variable will represent aand variable bis -5. Due to the exponents, the integers were raised to the 3rdpower anything minus a negative it becomes a positive, and then you will get the definitive answer.A.) a3 - b3 73 – (-53)343 – (-125)343+125Answer 468When performing the second expression, the variablesused were also aand b; 7 representing aand - 5 representing b.
