R Introduction: Part I

Vectors

It's time to explore how to store multiple values within a single variable, which can be efficiently done using vectors.

A vector in R is a basic data structure that allows you to store multiple values of the same type in a single variable.

It's essential to understand that a vector must contain data of the same type; this means you cannot mix integers, complex numbers, and logical values in a single vector.

Creating a vector in R is straightforward: just list all the values separated by commas inside the c() function. Here's how you do it:

When you input different data types within the c() function, R will default to one type for all elements. For instance, in a vector like c(1, 2, 'some text'), all numeric values will be converted to text. The reasoning is straightforward: if you attempt to construct a vector with varying types, R will select the one type to which all values can be converted.

Now, let's examine which types will be adopted when a vector consists of different data types.

  1. Display the vector containing the elements 0, 10.5, and 20, in that specific order.
  2. Display the vector containing the elements 1, 2.5, and 5 + 10i, in that order.
  3. Display the vector containing the elements 2.5, TRUE, and 5, in that order.
  4. Display the vector containing the elements FALSE, 25.5, and 'R', in that order.
