Part 1: What is Decision Tree?

If you have a complex decision that needs breaking down, look no further than decision trees. A decision tree shows you all of the possible outcomes of a set of choices. It starts off with a single node or outcome, which branches out into two or more possible outcomes. These will form another node, and more outcomes may branch out from those.

Decision trees are useful when it comes to weighing up the costs and benefits of certain decisions. In business, they may be used to determine the value of each choice. This allows individuals and businesses to choose paths and choices that lead to the most gain, or avoid ones that lead to the most loss.
