Genetics How do we know the percentage of shared genes among relatives?

hi everyone...

In this pedigree shown below I have read that
II 2, II 3, II 5 share 1/2 of their genes
and
III 1or2, III 3or4, III 5or6 share 1/8 of their genes

Want to know how disease gene sharing stuff among progeny is calculated???
