function in R Language is used to count the frequency of occurrence of a element in the vector. This function checks for each element in the vector and returns the number of times it occurs in the vector. It will create a vector of the length of the maximum element present in the vector.**tabulate()**

Syntax:tabulate(x, nbins)

Parameters:x:Numeric Vectornbins:to control length of output vector

**Example 1:**

`# R program to count frequency ` `# of elements in a vector` ` ` `# Creating a vector` `x1 <` `-` `c(` `3` `, ` `5` `, ` `3` `, ` `7` `, ` `9` `, ` `4` `, ` `6` `)` `x2 <` `-` `c(` `-` `1` `, ` `-` `4` `, ` `2.4` `, ` `6` `, ` `-` `7` `)` ` ` `# Calling tabulate() function` `tabulate(x1)` `tabulate(x2)` |

**Output:**

[1] 0 0 2 1 1 1 1 0 1 [1] 0 1 0 0 0 1

Here, in the above code, the tabulate() function has ignored the negative values in the second vector, because it works only on numbers which are positive integers.

**Example 2:**

`# R program to count frequency ` `# of elements in a vector` ` ` `# Creating a vector` `x1 <` `-` `c(` `3` `, ` `5` `, ` `3` `, ` `7` `, ` `9` `, ` `4` `, ` `6` `)` `x2 <` `-` `c(` `-` `1` `, ` `-` `4` `, ` `2.6` `, ` `6` `, ` `-` `7` `, ` `35` `)` ` ` `# Calling tabulate() function` `tabulate(x1, nbins ` `=` `4` `)` `tabulate(x2, nbins ` `=` `8` `)` |

**Output:**

[1] 0 0 2 1 [1] 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0

Here, in the above code, the length of the output vector is limited by the nbins passed as argument.
