A) Use the sample() function to construct a vector called dieRolls which simulates the results of 1000000 tosses of a six-sided die. (b) Convert dieRolls to a factor called dieRollsFactor. character(dieRollsFactor) (d) Apply the table() function to each of dieRolls, dieRollsFactor, and dieRollsChar, and compare the results as well as how the information in each of the data sets is displayed. time(table(dieRollsChar)) to compare the length of time required to construct the three tables, using each data type.

(c) Calculate the average weight of the chicks which were fed linseed. (d) Calculate the average weight of the chicks which were not fed linseed.

2 Taking random samples from populations The sample() function can be used to take samples (with or without replacement) from larger finite populations. Suppose, for example, that we have a data frame called fluSurvey consisting of 15000 entries, and we would like to randomly select 8 entries (without replacement) for detailed study. If the entries have been enumerated (say, by the use of an ID index) from 1 through 15000, we could select the 8 numbers with sampleID <- sample(1:15000, size = 8, replace = FALSE) sampleID ## [1] 7940 13609 11786 87 3850 5947 373 4767 The above numbers have been chosen randomly (or at least approximately so), and the random rows of fluSurvey, a supposedly existing data frame, can now be extracted with fluSample <- fluSurvey[sampleID,] The result is a new data frame consisting of 8 rows and the same number of columns as fluSurvey.
