Basic question about neurons

I am a neophyte so forgive the simpleness of my question, but why is it that
I always read descriptions and see pictures of neurons as having many
dendrites and few axon terminals? If this is representative of most neurons
in the brain, how is it possible to have so many inputs and so few outputs?

Thanks,
Chris
