A decision tree is a model that uses a tree-like graph for finding outcome decisions with probabilities. Decision tree learning is a supervised classification learning.

Its a popular tool in machine learning.

A typical decision tree looks like below

In above figure, 0 and 1 at leaf nodes represent outcome variable classes.Its a binary classification.Names in bold like smoke are predictor variables.Smoke=0 means if smoke=0,then go right else left.Splits are made in all predictor variables in the same way.
