# R program to illustrate
# between function
  
# Install dplyr package
install.packages("dplyr")   
  
# Load dplyr package    
library("dplyr")               
  
# Define value
x1 <- 7   
  
# Define lower bound                 
left1 <- 1  
  
# Define upper bound                  
right1 <- 10  
  
# Apply between function
between(x1, left1, right1)

Output:

TRUE

Here in the above code, we have defined value to 7 to x1 and defined upper and lower bound 1 and 10 respectively.
As we have given the value 7 falls in range 1 to 10. So the Output is “TRUE”.

Example 2: Value not in Range

# Load dplyr package

# Define value
x2 <- 11  
  
# Define lower range                      
left2 <- 1   
  
# Define upper range                    
right2 <- 10                        
  
# Apply between function
between(x2, left2, right2) 

chevron_right


Output:

FALSE

Here in the above code, we have assigned a value 11 to x2 and defined upper and lower bound to 1 and 10 respectively.
And clearly the value 11 does not fall in a given range from 1 to 10.
So the answer is FALSE.
