Calculate Median of elements of a Vector in R Programming – median() Function

function in R Language is used to calculate the median of the elements of the numeric vector passed as argument.**median()**

Syntax:median(x, na.rm)

Parameters:

x:Numeric Vector

na.rm:Boolean value to ignore NA

**Example 1:**

`# R program to calculate median of a vector ` ` ` `# Creating vector ` `x1 <` `-` `c(` `2` `, ` `3` `, ` `5` `, ` `7` `, ` `4` `, ` `8` `, ` `6` `) ` `x2 <` `-` `c(` `-` `3` `, ` `-` `5` `, ` `6` `, ` `2` `, ` `-` `4` `) ` ` ` `# Calling median() function ` `median(x1) ` `median(x2) ` |

**Example 2:**

`# R program to calculate median of a vector ` ` ` `# Creating vector ` `x <` `-` `c(` `2` `, ` `3` `, ` `5` `, NA, ` `4` `, NA, ` `6` `) ` ` ` `# Calling median() function ` `# with NA values included ` `median(x, na.rm ` `=` `FALSE) ` ` ` `# Calling median() function ` `# with NA values excluded ` `median(x, na.rm ` `=` `TRUE) ` |
