Hi, could you elaborate why we need to divide the total area of misclassification by 4?

If the input space is 2D, I can see that there are two triangles formed by f(x) and g(x), and the total area of the two triangles include all the errors. So I thought the P(f(x) != g(x)) = area of error / total area of input

Thanks in advance.
