Hi @Yubaba ,

Could you say a little more about what you're trying to achieve and what is going wrong?

as the attachment is showing,

if I run the codes, it doesn't even give output, it stays the same, and the red element that signifies something is still running never disappears until I press enter or escape. this means that there is continuous loop without stop, I think.

you should use triple backticks like

```
```
your code here
```
```

in order to format your code for the forum; what you shared was not legible.

This is the "stop sign" icon, which appears when R is either busy running your code, or when the code you have provided R is not a complete statement, in which case R is waiting for you complete the statement.

From your screenshot, I can see it would be good to familiarize yourself with the basics of R syntax and how R works, so I would suggest this as a starting place:

and as you work through the basics, you can post again if any questions arise for you.
