    are these sentences correct

    Please help me in understanding the following:
    • when I decided/ decide to come I will let you know
    • if i decide/decided to come I will/would let you know

    (here i have the intention to do something, but I am not sure if I will be able or not, is it correct to say decided or decide ( present simple) and is the second sentence correct to be used in this situation? if not why?


    your help will be appriciated.

    Re: are these sentences correct

    When I decide/have decided ... I will let .... I know that I will decide.
    If I decide to come ... I will let ... There is a possibility that I may not decide.
    If I decided ... I would let ... The possibility of my deciding is less likely.
