I reviewed sections 3 and 4 resulting in a few questions/comments.

 

*	In both sections variables X and N are used. N is defined as an
arbitrary number, which I think is fine. But X has not been defined.
*	Furthermore X is used in multiple spots and I doubt the value of X
would be the same each time. (Though perhaps I am wrong.)
*	Both X and N are presented in different ways throughout both
sections. These should probably be consistent. For example. X appears as
either "X" or X. The same with N.

 

Hope this helps.
