One of the most tools of data mining techniques is decision trees for both learning and reasoning from the crisp dataset. In a case of fuzzy dataset, the fuzzy decision tree must be established to extracted fuzzy rules. The paper illustrates an approach to establish fuzzy type-I decision tree from fuzzy type-II dataset using the ambiguity measure in fuzzy type-II form.
