Tree Diagrams

Arrange Ordering Games from left to right (or top to bottom) with the larger values on the left or the top.

T arrives before W and X. Z arrives before X.

A is before B, and A is also earlier than C.

We cannot infer any relationship between B and C. The relative order of the three elements could be A…B…C or it could be A…C…B.
