Default Relative size of data set v/s test set

Hi -

Based on assignment 9, just wanted to understand the significance of relative size of data set and the test set.

As per assignment from a total size of 9298 data points we use only 300 data points and reserve the rest for test set.

Is there any principle/logic behind the data set size and test set size ratio. Having a data set size far less than test set size kind of baffles me.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

THis is just to simulate learning with a small data set and the huge test set provides an accurate way to measure Eout.
