In the first part I covered a little background of R language, how to install R and RStudio and to install packages or load a library (). In this part I will be covering the following topics

- R Basics
- Functions
- Data Types

**Variables**— A variable is a name given to a memory location, which is used to store values in a program. Variables in R programming can be used to store numbers (real and complex), words, matrices, and even tables. Use the assignment symbol

to define a variable.**<-**

`# Assigning values to variables `

a <- 1

b <- 1…

- Background
- Installation
- Installing Packages and loading a Library

Both R and RStudio can be freely downloaded and installed.

You can download R from the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN) or search for CRAN on your browser.
