# Regular expression for the language of an odd number of a

## What is the regular expression for the language of an odd number of as?

A regular expression for the language of an odd number of a’s is given below.

**Regular expression = ****b**^{∗}**ab**^{∗}**(b**^{∗}**ab**^{∗}**ab**^{∗}**)**^{∗}

Now, let’s discuss what strings should be accepted or rejected by our Regular Expression.

Accepted Strings |

You should check some small, some medium and some large size strings that are part of the language and all of them(100% strings) should be accepted by our R.E. |

Small strings:
a, ba, ab, bab, bba, abb, aaa, abaa…… and all such strings that contain odd numbers of a’s in the strings. |

Medium size strings:
baabaaaab, bbaaaaab, babbaabb,……and all such strings that contain odd numbers of a’s in the strings. |

Large size strings:
abbbbbbbbabbbbbbba, aabbbabaaabbabbbbb…….and all such strings that contain odd numbers of a’s in the string. |

Rejected Strings |

You should check some small, some medium and some large size strings that are not part of the language and all of them(100% strings) should be rejected by our R.E. |

Small strings:
b, bb, aa, baa, aba, abb, aab, aaaa …… and all such strings that are not part of our language( does not contains odd numbers of a’s in the strings). |

Medium size strings:
abbbbba, babbabbaba, aaaabbbaa…… and all such strings that are not part of our language (does not contains odd numbers of a’s in the strings). |

Large size strings:
abbbbbbbbabbbbbbaa, aabbbabaaabbaabbbb,…….and all such strings that do not contain odd numbers of a’s in the string(not part of the language). |
