Homework Help: Is the language 0^i10^j decidable?

  1. Jun 25, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Is the language 0i10j decidable? ( this is 0 to the ith power and 10 to the jth power just to clarify)

    Please design a turing machine to prove your conclusion

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I'm honestly really stuck on this example and I don't have any idea on where to begin and this concept confuses me, how exactly do i simulate this using a turing machine?

    Is the answer not zero? What turning Machine has to do with this?
