R Program to create a factor corresponding to height of women data set

How to create a factor corresponding to the height of women data set

Here we are explaining how to write an R program to create a factor corresponding to the height of women data set. Here we are using built-in function cut() for this creation. The function cut() divides the range of x into intervals. It codes the values in x according to which intervals. The syntax of these functions are 


cut(x, …) #Where x is an R object,like matrix, array or data frame
 

How to create a factor corresponding to the height of women data set in the R Program

Below are the steps used in the R program to create a factor corresponding to the height of the women data set, we directly give the values to built-in functions. And print the function result. Here we use the variable D for assigning women data variablefor assigning calculated factor value using cut() method. Print the resulting factor.

ALGORITHM

STEP 1: Assign variable with given data

STEP 2: First print original data

STEP 3:Call the built-in function cut as cut(women$height,3)

STEP 4: Assign variable H with the function result

STEP 5: Print the result factor

 

R Source Code

                                          D= women
print("Women data set of height and weights:")
print(D)
H = cut(women$height,3)
print("Factor corresponding to height:")
print(table(H))
