Thanks dear prof first!
Assume we start at init hypothesis w=(0, 0, 0), init target function is w_t=(0.5, 2, 5)
As w = w + yx, y equals 0 or 1,x_n = (1, 0.5, 3) etc
When in iteration, w_0 = w_0 + y*x_0, as y and x_0 can only be 0 or 1, so the hypothesis function's threshold may be quite different from the target function, right?
