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 Vectorna.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)` |

**Output:**

[1] 5 [1] -3

**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)` |

**Output:**

[1] NA [1] 4
