Rasanya colors have different sensitivity people eye, respectively, to average not.

If you mean the formula, here's one option:
G = 0.21 * R + 0.71 * G + 0.07 * B

Do not understand where exactly these factors? - joanie4 commented on October 3rd 19 at 02:03

The most well-known formula (from Wiki): In the color spaces YUV and YIQ used in NTSC and PAL luminance Y' is calculated as follows: Y' = 0.299 R + 0.587 G + 0.114 B To account for the perception of the image by the human eye (sensitivity to green and blue color) in models of HDTV use the other indexes: Y' = 0.2126 R + 0.7152 G + 0.0722 B - Matt.Bashirian30 commented on October 3rd 19 at 02:12
