Abstract: Let $ {P_s} = {\mathbb{F}_2}[{x_1}, \ldots ,{x_s}]$ be the $ \bmod\;2$ cohomology of the s-fold product of $ \mathbb{R}{{\text{P}}^\infty }$ with the usual structure as a module over the Steenrod algebra. A monomial in $ {P_s}$ is said to be hit if it is in the image of the action $ \bar A \otimes {P_s} \to {P_s}$ where $ \bar A$ is the augmentation ideal of A. We extend a result of Wood to determine a new family of hit monomials in $ {P_s}$. We then use similar methods to obtain a generalization of antiautomorphism formulas of Davis and Gallant.
