Formulation of the practical problem. In cancer research, it is important to find out the genetic difference between the cancer cells and the healthy cells.
In the ideal world, we should be able to have a sample of cancer cells, and a sample of healthy cells, and thus directly measure the concentrations c and h of a given gene in cancer and in healthy cells. In reality, it is very difficult to separate the cells, so we have to deal with samples that contain both cancer and normal cells.
