There is no way to determine a because you have provided no mathematical statement in which it appears. Perhaps you copied the question incorrectly. This is the second time you have posted this, and my response is the same.

I think your teacher made an error in the assignment. It doesnt make sense. You can't ask for an "a" value if there is no place to put it in the number.
