Default exercise 1, ballpark rule?

The homework exercises usually teach one some lesson. Is exercise 1 an illustration of the ballpark rule about the VC dimension and the number of training examples?

Sometimes analytic formulas are better understood when you substitute concrete numerical values to get a feel for what they are saying in practical terms, so this can be considered the lesson here.
