The basic problem consists of finding a given object in a set of objects of the same kind.

We make an important observation about decision trees and the sorting algorithms represented as decision trees: If a sorting algorithm correctly sorts all possible input sequences of n items, then the corresponding decision tree has n! outcome boxes. This observation follows by examining the correspondence between permutations and outcome boxes. Since the decision tree arose by tracing through the algorithm for all possible input sequences (that is, permutations), an outcome box must have occurred as the result of some input permutation or it would not be in the decision tree.

We label each item in the tree with the frequency that the search ends at that item. 3 shows a simple example. 3 is done by comparing the unknown element z with x4 (the root); if z = x4 , the search ends. If z < x4 , z is compared with x2 (the root of the left subtree); if z = x2 , the search ends. Otherwise, if z < x2 , z is compared with x1 (the root of the left subtree of x2 ); if z = x1 , the search ends. Otherwise, if z < x1 , the search ends unsuccessfully at the leaf labeled α0 . Other x4 results of comparisons lead along other paths in the tree from the root β4 downward.
