In the Dragon book (Aho, Sethi, Ullmann) there is one exercise I don't get.
Chapter 2, Exercies: 2.1
Given the context-free grammar $$S \to S S + \mid S S * \mid a$$ Task: Show how the signs aa+a* can be produced from this grammar.
I understand the grammar, $S$ can have the form $S S +$… and so on. But I don't know what I'm supposed to do in this task. Sadly I can't find any solutions on the web.
