Well-explained! LGTM :D

Not blocking but do we need the evalml/tests/pipeline_tests/explanations_tests/ empty file?

"In the example below, we explain the prediction for the third data point in the data set. We see that the `worst concave points` feature increased the estimated probability that the tumor is malignant by 20% while the `worst radius` feature decreased the probability the tumor is malignant by 5%.\n",
"The interpretation of the table is the same for regression problems - but the SHAP value now corresponds to the change in the estimated value of the dependent variable rather than a change in probability. For multiclass classification problems, a table will be output for each possible class."

@freddyaboulton I just checked this out. This looks great! My only thought was this paragraph could go after the example since its not directly connected to the example.
