If we drop one dummy, then the three distances will no longer be identical!
For example, if we drop : Distance(#1, #2) = 1 1 = 2 Distance(#1, #3) = 1 Distance(#2, #3) = 1 The above problem doesn't happen with m=2. The distance between a pair of records will be 0 if the records are the same color, or 1 if they are different. If we use two dummies, we are doubling the weight of this variable but not adding any information.
For example, comparing the red and green records using would give Distance(#1, #3) = 1 1 = 2.
So we end up with distances of 0 or 2 instead of weights of 0 or 1.

As always, every stat is linked to its original source and has the source date listed.
