Default Re: Clarification Request On Problem 14

Thanks for the prompt response.

Ein of zero is perfectly separated. I understand that. Perhaps my confusion arose from thinking about the PLA and how it can fail spectacularly when confronted with non-separable data. I had the impression that missing a few target function points during the in-sample error calculation wasn't a problem of the same magnitude as the solver being unable to converge to any solution at all.

I will talley up the Ein=0 statistics as specified in the problem instructions. Thanks.
