In the subject of game theory, we can make use of a game tree (decision tree) of outcomes to determine the best possible choices to make. A decision tree often consists of all possible outcomes (or payoffs) and the associated probabilities per decision made. Thus, with a game tree, we can find all outcomes and probabilities associated per outcome; then, we can use expected value formula to determine payoffs.
