If the entries have been enumerated (say, by the use of an ID index) from 1 through 15000, we could select the 8 numbers with sampleID <- sample(1:15000, size = 8, replace = FALSE) sampleID ## [1] 7940 13609 11786 87 3850 5947 373 4767 The above numbers have been chosen randomly (or at least approximately so), and the random rows of fluSurvey, a supposedly existing data frame, can now be extracted with fluSample <- fluSurvey[sampleID,] The result is a new data frame consisting of 8 rows and the same number of columns as fluSurvey.

First, they are not vectorized: only one calculation is done. Secondly, they are guaranteed to be evaluated from left to right, with the right-hand operand evaluated only if necessary. For example, if A is FALSE, then A && B will be FALSE regardless of the value of B, so B needn’t be evaluated. This can save time if evaluating B would be very slow, and may make calculations easier, for example if evaluating B would cause an error when A was FALSE. This behavior is sometimes called short-circuit evaluation.

3. The expr parameter is either a function (whose output is a numeric vector when the input is a numeric vector) or an expression in terms of x. An example of the latter type of usage is curve(xˆ2 - 10 * x, from = 1, to = 10) More information on graphics can be found in Chapter 3. 5 Some elementary built-in functions The sample median The sample median measures the middle value of a data set. If the data are x[1] ≤ x[2] ≤ · · · ≤ x[n], then the median is x[(n + 1)/2] if n is odd, or {[x[n/2] + x[n/2 + 1]}/2 if n is even.
