## Problem 4

A *word* is defined as any finite string of letters. A word is a *palindrome* if it reads the same backwards as forwards. Let a sequence of words , , , be defined as follows: , , and for , is the word formed by writing follows by . Prove that for any , the word formed by writing , , , in succession is a palindrome.
