# Data Types

Understanding data types is fundamental in R programming as they dictate how data is stored, interpreted, and manipulated, so let's explore the various data types in R and their characteristics.

Each data type serves specific purposes and ensures that the data is handled appropriately according to its nature.

Here are the most common data types in R:

To determine the data type of a given variable, you would use the `typeof()` function, providing the respective variable name as its argument. For example:

Take the initiative to practice this function on your own!

1. Assign the number `10` to a variable named `chapter`.
2. Display the data type of the `chapter` variable.

1. Assign the number `10` to a variable named `chapter`.
2. Display the data type of the `chapter` variable.
