Default Re: validation exercises, unclear about non-linear transformation functions

Thanks professor! It had to be a vector, of course.

As in other exercises, coding concrete examples is great and is really the only way to concretely understand what is taught in class.

In this case, are you also trying to illustrate the balance when chosing the size of the validation sample, i.e. we can get closer to Eout chosing a larger sample but Eout itself will get worse, because we are removing too many points from the training set? I try to understand the point of each exercise, I hope I am not making too much of it

thanks again,
