Problem 1 1. baa L(a*b*a*b*)? Yes. Say the first a* yields the empty string. The first b* yields one b, then we will have ‘b’. Let the second a* yield ‘aa’, and the last b* yield the empty string. We will have ‘ baa’. 2. b*a* a*b* = a* b*? Yes, because both a* and b* is contained in both b*a* and a*b*. Any concatenations that have both a and b will not be included in the intersection. So only a* and b* will be the only common items in the intersection. 3. a*b* c*d* = ? No, because each set has the empty string. So the intersection will have the empty string in it as well. 4. abcd L( ( a( cd ) * b) * )? No, because no matter what, the letter ‘b’ will never appear before ‘c’ or ‘d’ based on the ordering of the concatenation.

What students are saying

• 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.
