Homework 2 clarification
 
In 5, should the N=100 points be drawn from the same initial random set, or should a new line and set be generated for each of the 1000 iterations?

Also, in point 8, f(x1,x2) refers to the coordinate of a single point, right?

I think the N = 100 should be fresh to make independent experiments. Whether drawing a new f shouldn't matter (much).

For Problem 8, you are right. x_1, x_2 are the coordinates of a single point.
