# Decision Tree Classification

There are various machine learning algorithms that can be put into use for dealing with classification problems. One such algorithm is the Decision Tree algorithm, which apart from classification can also be used for solving regression problems. Though one of the simplest classification algorithms, if its parameters are tuned properly can yield incredibly accurate results.

**How are Decisions Made in a Decision Tree? **

The Decision tree algorithm is a simple yet efficient supervised learning algorithm wherein the data points are continuously split according to certain parameters and/or the problem that the algorithm is trying to solve. Decision trees are also popularly referred to as CART (which stands for Classification and Regression Trees).
