Could someone please guide me how to go about solving this problem?
$$ baa \in a^*b^*a^*b^* .$$
The question asks whether string $baa$ is an element of $a^*b^*a^*b^*$ (in other words a set of any combination of $a$'s or $b$'s).
Intuitively, I would say yes of course it's an element, but how can I show it more formally?
"*" denotes Kleene Star.
