I can't make this function right

proportion <- function(v,i,j) for(v in i:j){proportion<-return(proportion for(v in i:j)}

I'm trying to make function proportion, wich would return from v values between i:j

Hi, welcome!

Please have a look to our homework policy, homework inspired questions are welcome but they should not include verbatim instructions from your course.

Thank you, hadn't noticed that!

For part one i've tried to make these codes, but have i done it too complicated or where i've gone wrong?

```
proportion <-funktion(v=1,i=0,j=1)[values <-runif(v=V,min=i, max=j)int_values <-round(values),return(int_values)]
proportion= random_integers <-funktion(v,i,j)[values <-runif(v=v,min=i, max=j)int_values <-round(values),return(int_values)]
```

This seems like a german spelling, if we assume that you have a localised version of R, this may work, otherwise not. However, its a mistake to use square brackets to enclose the function body, where curly braces are required.

Here is a good intro document for you to review

R - Functions - Tutorialspoint

Iäm unsure how to make this on work: how to get it return values from v between i:j

proportion <- function(v) for(v in i:j){proportion<-return(v, i;j)

your function doesnt take v , i and j, it only takes v. .

...and it does nothing with it...`proportion <- return(proportion)`

doesnt relate to v in anyway, its sort of a strange function that returns itself.

Oh yes, that's it. Now i have to manage make it return values between i and j.

I progressed a bit with sekond part:

proportion <- function(100000) rbinom(n=100000, size=64, prob=1/2)

do you have questions about that ?

Yes, i tried to make my funtion based on it.

proportion <- function(v) for(v in i:j){proportion<-return(proportion)}

Thanks to you i see now that it doesen't return anything. Still can't make it work

proportion <- function(v, i, j) {proportion<-return(proportion for(v in i:j)}

Does this look better?

proportion <- function(v) {proportion (rep(i:j))<-return(v, i:j)}

ok, lets step back from your attempt at function making and see if we can straightforwardly answer some questions relating to the requirements. I expect the first one will be easy , and the second one might require more thought.

1 ) What are the desired parameters for your function 'proportion' ? list them.

2) in R how would one check whether numbers are between other numbers ?

what would you type on the console to check that 4 was between 3 and 5 ?

what would you type to check that 0 was (or wasnt) between 3 and 5 ?

It seems that rather than reply to me, you are reposting the verbatim homework...

This is not advisable.

I don't know other way to describe it and this was not copy of my homework, i was describing with my own words what i need to do

Thank you anyway!

Luckily i still have whole weekend to figure this out.
