24  Crew Female Child      Yes    0
25  1st   Male Adult      Yes   57
26  2nd   Male Adult      Yes   14
27  3rd   Male Adult      Yes   75

30  2nd Female Adult      Yes   80
31  3rd Female Adult      Yes   76
32  Crew Female Adult      Yes   20

If there were no frequency but only single valued data, then I know how to invoke rpart to construct a decision tree for me. How to do it considering the frequency of each class?

I am a beginner in R. Thanks

To use the column named Freq as your case weights, you can call rpart with the argument weights=Freq.
