LaTeX probability tree

Please could you tell me if the Probability tree posted on 2006-12-14 by Kjell Magne Fauske can be done with three branches instead of just two.

• Welcome to TeX.sx! Do you mean this tree texample.net/tikz/examples/probability-tree? Exactly where do you want to add branches? You may want to add some example code to your question. – N.N. Dec 24 '11 at 21:47
• Yes, I do, that is the exact example. Instead of two branches coming off the first node (Bag 1) I want three. – XYZ Dec 24 '11 at 21:56

• To add another "Bag 2" branch, add another node[bag] structure.
• To add another end branch, add another child { node[end] {}} to a node[bag] structure.

You can merely copy and paste the right parts to achieve it.

Here is a simplified example of http://www.texample.net/tikz/examples/probability-tree/ where another of each sorts of branches has been added:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{trees}
\begin{document}

% Set the overall layout of the tree
\tikzstyle{level 1}=[level distance=3.5cm, sibling distance=3.5cm]
\tikzstyle{level 2}=[level distance=3.5cm, sibling distance=2cm]

% Define styles for bags and leafs
\tikzstyle{bag} = [text width=4em, text centered]
\tikzstyle{end} = [circle, minimum width=3pt,fill, inner sep=0pt]

\begin{tikzpicture}[grow=right, sloped]
\node[bag] {Bag 1}
child {
node[bag] {Bag 2}% This is the first of three "Bag 2"
child {
node[end] {}
}
child {
node[end] {}
}
}
child {
node[bag] {Bag 2}
child {
node[end] {}
}
child {
node[end] {}
}
}
child {
node[bag] {Bag 2}
child {% Here are three children, hence three end branches
node[end] {}
}
child {
node[end] {}
}
child {
node[end] {}
}
};
\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document} • Can this be done till the second step (where it says bag 2) only? I'm trying so much time and it constantly collapses. – Y_gr Oct 28 '15 at 17:14
• can you do it so that on the second step all three have 3 branches – Jettie Baker Aug 10 at 20:44
