I have the following dream:
I need to do some decision making, let’s assume we need to pick a choice for a new vehicle. The vehicle might be a plain car but might also be a station wagon or a van. It might run on fuel or gasoline or LPG or electrical or hybrid or…
Vehicle might be new or second hand.
I think you get the idea.
I was wondering if it would be possible to present this in a mathematical way, using e.g union of sets and / or combined with the intersection of the various elements.
Please mind that I am totally non-familiar with “English” vocabulary in the field of mathematics. (Native Dutch)
Would it be possible to lay this out in a Tinderbox map?
What are your thoughts?
As an illustration I add an image representing a Union of Sets, that I found on mathgoodies.com.
