Unformatted text preview: 2) For a) b) (It 1'53 .3 review of regular languages. 7' “r *9 "r = raj-owing languages L, state whether or not L is regular.

For {.15 - 5:; to be divisible by 5, either lx| or [vi (or both) must be divisible by 5. So L is defined by the thieving regtflar expression: - .e i a, green u 1)* u (0 u 1)*#((D L) 1)5)*, where (O u if is simply a shorthand for writing (0 u 1) five times in a row. {W 5 {a b}* ; w : W23 m 2 b4 : izg, andz : x with every a replaced by b and every b replaced by a}. Example: abbbabbaa e L, withx= abb,y= bab, andz : baa. Not regular, which we’ll show-by pumping. Let w m akakbk. This string is in L since 3: = all, y = a’i and z = y (from the pumping theorem) 2 a" for some nonzero p. Let g = 2 (ie, we pump in once); lfp is not dhisfble by 3, then the resulting string is not in L because it cannot be divided into three equal length segments. pr = 31' for integer i, then, when we divide the resulting string into three segments of equal length, each segment gets longer by 1' characters. The first segment is still all a’s, so the last segment must remain all b’s. But it doesn’t. It grows by absorbing a’s fiom the second segment Thus 2 no longer e x with every a replaced by b and every b replaced by a. So the resulting string is not in L.

The-length of the resulting suing s is zit-most 21‘. But the next power of 10 is 10f. Thus 3 cannot be in L. - each of the following claims, state whether it is T rue or False. Prove your answer.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
