An image is partitioned into two regions one white and
An image is partitioned into two regions, one white and the other black. A reading taken from a randomly chosen point in the white section will give a reading that is normally distributed with μ = 4 and σ2 = 4, whereas one taken from a randomly chosen point in the black region will have a normally distributed reading with parameters (6, 9). A point is randomly chosen on the image and has a reading of 5. If the fraction of the image that is black is α, for what value of α would the probability of making an error be the same, regardless of whether one concluded that the point was in the black region or in the white region?
