# Thread: If weights of all the features are considered equal

1. ## If weights of all the features are considered equal

Hi . I think this sentence is not in the nice form.
Thank You!

"If weights of all the features are considered equal,
When the values of features are close to each other ,
there is the possibility of error in detecting."

I am not clear on what you mean, so the best I can do is take a wild guess.

"If all of the features are equally weighted, then when the values of the features are nearly the same there is the possibility of error in differentiating between the features".

Provide a context and a more thorough explanation of your meaning, and perhaps we can help you more successfully.

"If weights of all the features (1) are considered equal,
When the values of features (2) are close to each other ,
there is the possibility of error in detecting (3)."
1 We usually talk about the weight of physical things and not the "weight of features", which is so vague. Why don't you say what the features are? It sounds like a scientific statement, in which case, it ought to be more precise.
2. "Value" is another vague word. What is the unit of measurement?
3. Error in detecting what?

The sentence is not clear because the bolded phrases cannot be understood. If you would express them in clearer terms, then the sentence can be understood.

I think a more useful title would be "If weights of all the features are considered equal".
