# Get Indices of Specified Values of an Array in R Programming – arrayInd() Function

• Last Updated : 08 Jun, 2020

`arrayInd()` function in R Language is used to get the indices of the values passed to the function as argument. This function takes values and the array in which the values are to be searched and returns the indices for each match found.

Syntax: arrayInd(values, dim(x))

Parameters:
values: value or vector of values to be searched
dim(x): array to be searched
x: Array name

Example 1:

 `# R program to illustrate ``# the use of arrayInd() function`` ` `# Creating an array``x <``-` `array(``1``:``9``, dim ``=` `c(``2``, ``3``)) ``x`` ` `# Creating vector of values to be found``x1 <``-` `c(``5``, ``4``, ``6``)`` ` `# Calling arrayInd() function``arrayInd(x1, dim(x))`

Output:

```     [, 1] [, 2] [, 3]
[1, ]    1    3    5
[2, ]    2    4    6
[, 1] [, 2]
[1, ]    1    3
[2, ]    2    2
[3, ]    2    3
```

Example 2:

 `# R program to illustrate ``# the use of arrayInd() function`` ` `# Creating an array``x <``-` `array(``1``:``9``, dim ``=` `c(``3``, ``3``)) ``x`` ` `# Extracting values using which() function``x1 <``-` `which(x > ``3` `& x < ``8``)`` ` `# Calling arrayInd() function``arrayInd(x1, dim(x))`

Output:

```
[, 1] [, 2] [, 3]
[1, ]    1    4    7
[2, ]    2    5    8
[3, ]    3    6    9
[, 1] [, 2]
[1, ]    1    2
[2, ]    2    2
[3, ]    3    2
[4, ]    1    3
```

Here, in tonhte above code, the `arrayInd()` function returns the indices of all the values which were returned by the `which()` function.
