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 negative of the one- or two-digit       day number, and  c = the       two-digit year number.
      (Our example:  a = 3, b = -13, and c = 81 or 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 is negative 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.
