Solution Manual Error??

6M.1 "A student was given a standard Cu(s)|Cu^2+(aq) half-cell and another half-cell containing unknown metal M in 1.00M M(NO3)2 and formed the cell M(S)|M+||Cu2+|Cu(s). The cell potential was found to be -.689V. What is the standard potential of (M^2+/M)?"

The solution manual rewrites the cell so that it has M2+ where the original problem has M+, and it also flips the cell so that the copper half cell is on the left and the mystery cell is on the right. Is this an error? If not, what is the logic behind doing this?

I'm not super sure if this is an error, but if it is, it might be listed on Lavelle's website under his solution manual errors document.
