Here we are explaining how to write an R program to sort a Vector in ascending and descending order. Here we are using a built-in function sort() for this finding. The sort() function helps to sort a vector by its values. The sorting can be possible in both ascending and descending order. By default, it sorts in ascending order for making sorting in ascending order need to set decreasing=TRUE. The syntax of sorting is like
sort(x, decreasing, na.last)
Here x is the vector to be sorted, decreasing is the Boolean value to sort in descending order, and na.last is the Boolean value to put NA at the end.
Below are the steps used in the R program to get the last value in a given vector. In this R program, we directly give the values to built-in functions. For that first, we find the length of the vector into variable A. Finally, call the sort function by setting decreasing=TRUE for making it descending order.
STEP 1: Assign variable A with vector values
STEP 2: First print original vector values
STEP 3: call the sort() for getting results in ascending order
STEP 4: After sort by setting decreasing=TRUE
STEP 5: print the result of the function
A= c(10, 12, 30, 25, 8, 29) print("Original Vectors:") print(A) print("Sort in ascending order:") print(sort(A)) print("Sort in descending order:") print(sort(A, decreasing=TRUE))
 "Original Vectors:"  10, 12, 30, 25, 8, 29  "Sort in ascending order:"  8 10 12 25 29 30  "Sort in descending order:"  30 29 25 12 10 8
