The message below points out a "typo" in the notes. The

I was just reviewing the classification tree example on page 6 of the
notes handed out in lecture today and I think there may be an error
in the tree labeled "Tree Found by Greedy Algorithm". It looks like
an answer of "yes" to the first decision (L < 1.5) should indicate a
"no" to the question of bankruptcy, not "yes" as written.

Am I missing something?
