# Intersection of Two Objects in R Programming – intersect() Function

`intersect()` function in R Language is used to find the intersection of two Objects. This function takes two objects like Vectors, dataframes, etc. as arguments and results in a third object with the common data of both the objects.

Syntax: intersect(x, y)

Parameters:
x and y: Objects with sequence of items

Example 1:

 `# R program to illustrate  ` `# intersection of two vectors  ` `   `  `# Vector 1  ` `x1 <``-` `c(``1``, ``2``, ``3``, ``4``, ``5``, ``6``, ``5``, ``5``)     ` `   `  `# Vector 2   ` `x2 <``-` `c(``2``:``4``)      ` `   `  `# Intersection of two vectors    ` `x3 <``-` `intersect(x1, x2)        ` `   `  `print``(x3)                  `

Output:

``` 2 3 4
```

Example 2:

 `# R program to illustrate   ` `# the intersection of two data frames  ` `   `  `# Data frame 1  ` `data_x <``-` `data.frame(x1 ``=` `c(``2``, ``3``, ``4``),      ` `                     ``x2 ``=` `c(``1``, ``1``, ``1``))  ` `   `  `# Data frame 2  ` `data_y <``-` `data.frame(y1 ``=` `c(``2``, ``3``, ``4``),         ` `                     ``y2 ``=` `c(``2``, ``2``, ``2``))  ` `   `  `# Intersection of two data frames  ` `data_z <``-` `intersect(data_x, data_y)    ` `   `  `print``(data_z)                 `

Output:

```  y1
1  2
2  3
3  4
```
