## This week's challenge

This week's challenge was suggested by BlueTaslem. There is a problem in computer science that asks if strings from one table can be concatenated together to match the strings of another table. This problem is called the **Post correspondence problem**.

If you're confused on the problem like I was, this video explains the problem very well.

You're required to make a function that returns the string that can be made from both tables. Example:

local function PostCorrespondence(table1, table2) -- You could return aaaab, because using the block aaaa & aa from the first index of the tables, and then using the second index of both tables, you get aaaa..b for the first table, and aa..aab for the second, which makes a matching string. end PostCorrespondence({"aaaa", "b"}, {"aa", "aab"})

This problem is an undecidable decision problem, but extra points to you if you wish to return false to some solutions that you know can't be combined to make a matching string.
