There are indeed instances in the homeworks where the same experiment covers a number of homework problems.

Problem 5 asks about E_{\rm in} while Problem 6 asks about (an estimate of) E_{\rm out}. In both problems, N=100 (N stands for the number of training examples in our notation).
Where everyone thinks alike, no one thinks very much
