Finding the Optimal # of Trees Dear Dr. Ballings,
In section 2.8.6 Exercises for Section 2.5.7, the question asks,
"Create a bagged tree of the following tree and tune the ensemble size."
In the book on page 122, the following code is used:
#Create 3 trees
ensemblesize <- 10
ensembleoftrees <- vector(mode='list',length=ensemblesize)
Why is the ensemble size 10 if we are creating 3 trees?
Thank you for your help, I greatly appreciate it.

Thank you for pointing this out.
That is a typo: it should be
#Create 10 trees
