    4. a) Show that the projective space with a disk removed (more precisely, the image of a disk on S2 under the natural projection pi : S2 -> P2 removed) is a M¨obius band.
    b) Let M be the connected sum of two copies of the projective space formed by removing a disk from each copy of P2 and gluing the resulting surfaces together along the boundaries of the holes. Which standard surface do you obtain?

    This ugly paint file is what I believe is 1, if I am correct, then part b is just 2 mobius bands added together to make one big mobius band.
