In question 6, Ntest = 1000 and Nexp = 1000 and we use N=100 of question 5.

Am I correct in assuming that for each of the Nexp runs we:
1. Generate f(x)
2. Generate N training points
3. Estimate g(x)
4. Generate Ntest testing points
5. Evaluate g(x) on the Ntest testing points and record the Eout for that run.

After completing Nexp runs, average the Eout values to get a final estimate for Eout.

You got it.
