**Class: **RegressionTree

Binary decision tree for regression (to be removed)

`RegressionTree.fit`

will be removed in a future
release. Use `fitrtree`

instead.

```
tree =
RegressionTree.fit(x,y)
```

tree = RegressionTree.fit(x,y,Name,Value)

returns
a regression tree based on the input variables (also known as predictors,
features, or attributes) `tree`

=
RegressionTree.fit(`x`

,`y`

)`x`

and output (response) `y`

. `tree`

is
a binary tree where each branching node is split based on the values
of a column of `x`

.

fits
a tree with additional options specified by one or more `tree`

= RegressionTree.fit(`x`

,`y`

,`Name,Value`

)`Name,Value`

pair
arguments. You can specify several name-value pair arguments in any
order as `Name1,Value1,…,NameN,ValueN`

.

Note that using the `'CrossVal'`

, `'KFold'`

, `'Holdout'`

, `'Leaveout'`

,
or `'CVPartition'`

options results in a tree of class `RegressionPartitionedModel`

.
You cannot use a partitioned tree for prediction, so this kind of
tree does not have a `predict`

method.

Otherwise, `tree`

is of class `RegressionTree`

, and
you can use the `predict`

method to make predictions.
