Default Chapter 4 Problem 4.4

I have the following questions. I have a few more on using Legendre polynomials but I will read 4.3 first before asking

a) what does selecting x_1, x_2, ... x_n independently with P(x) mean? In earlier homework, we selected the points at random from [-1,1] which was clear to me - I used a random function with min = -1 and max = +1 but I am not clear what to do with P(x)

b) y_n is clear since it is f(x_n). Should we generate random numbers for each epsilon_n? If so, what are the min and max values for the random numbers?

Thank you!
