Calculate difference between columns of R DataFrame
Generally, the difference between two columns can be calculated from a dataframe that contains some numeric data. In this article, we will discuss how the difference between columns can be calculated in the R programming language.
- Create a dataframe and the columns should be of numeric or integer data type so that we can find the difference between them.
- Extract required data from columns using the $ operator into separate variables. For example, we have two columns then extract individual columns into separate variables.
- Then perform the minus operation for the difference between those columns.
- Finally, print the result.
