Calculate nCr value in R Programming – choose() Function
  • Last Updated : 01 Jun, 2020

R Language offers a direct function that can compute the nCr value without writing the whole code for computing nCr value.

Syntax: choose(n, r)

Parameters:
n: Number of elements
r: Number of combinations

Returns: The number of r combinations from a total of n elements, i.e, nCr value.

Example 1:






# R program to calculate nCr value 
    
# Using choose() method 
answer1 <- choose(3, 2
answer2 <- choose(3, 7)  
answer3 <- choose(7, 3)
  
print(answer1) 
print(answer2) 
print(answer3) 

Output:

3
0
35

Example 2: If we provide the value of n and r such that n < r then choose(n, r) will return 0.




# R program to calculate nCr value 
     
# Using choose() method 
answer1 <- choose(2, 3
answer2 <- choose(3, 6)  
answer3 <- choose(3, 7)
   
print(answer1) 
print(answer2) 
print(answer3) 

Output:
