# Two Questions About The Perceptron Algorithm

If anyone has any insight into any of the 2 questions below, I'd greatly appreciate it.

1) We know that the online perceptron algorithm can be used to learn a linear threshold function: w1*x1 + w2*x2 + w3*x3 >= 0". What if, there's a linear threshold function, and we already KNOW that:
a) the weights of this linear threshold function are always positive
b) the sum of the weights of our linear threshold function do not exceed a constant W.

How can we use the Perceptron algorithm to learn this particular linear threshold function? (As in, how would we modify the original Perceptron algorithm to learn this particular function)? And what is the most number of mistakes we can make with this Perceptron algorithm?

2) When learning using the perceptron algorithm, imagine there's one example where the wrong label is shown (eg: output should be 1, but it falsely told the algorithm that the output is 0). How does this change the maximum number of mistakes we make with the Perceptron?

Miscellaneous

A miscellany is defined as a "collection of various pieces of writing by different authors", but it has come to mean something "Of items gathered or considered together of various types or from different sources" or "a collection or group composed of members or elements of different kinds". The word "miscellaneous" comes from the Latin word "miscere", meaning "to mix." You might have heard the expression "a mixed bag," which applies when you don't quite know what you're going to get. More commonly, a miscellaneous group is made up of an odd group of things that don't fit anywhere else.
