so we start with S > aQT (we must have at least one a) Q > aQ  ε (we can generate any number of a's before b) T > aaTb  ε (if we create at least one b we must put two a's before b)

Wow! Thanks! Here is what I came up with this morning toying around. \[S_0 \rightarrow aaS_1b  aaS_1b  aS_1\] \[S_1 \rightarrow S_0\epsilon  a\] Is this equivalent?

no, for example you can't get just a, but according to rules you should be able to however maybe you made mistake by typing because if it will be S_1 > S_0ϵa i think it would be ok and aaS_1b is same as aaS_1b so why you mention it 2 times? :D

Yes you are right, I mistyped, and my computer was acting up. I did have S1>S0  epsilon  a. Thanks for the help!
