Laboratory #1 (60 points) (1) The following are the ages of each U.S. president when they were sworn into office: 57, 61, 57, 57, 58, 57, 61, 54, 68, 51, 49, 64, 50, 48, 65, 52, 56, 46, 54, 49, 51, 47, 55, 55, 54, 42, 51, 56, 55, 51, 54, 51, 60, 62, 43, 55, 56, 61, 52, 69, 64, 46, 54, 47, 70 Use the c() function to create a list called “ages” that contains the above ages. You can cut and paste the ages from above. ages <-c(57,61,57,57,58,57,61,54,68,51,49,64,50,48,65,52,56,46,54,49,51,47,55,55, 54,42,51,56,55,51,54,51,60,62,43,55,56,61,52,69,64,46,54,47,70) Create a frequency table called “ages.table” using the table() function. This function will calculate the frequency of each age (i.e., how many presidents were 42, 43, 44, etc.). ages.table<-table(ages) Recall your table to see the result: ages.table

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
