R Question

Good day!

I’ve got a table of two columns. In the first column (x) there are values which I want to divide in into categories according to the specified range of values (in my instance – 300). And then using these categories I want to sum values in anther column (v). For instance, using my test data: The first category is from 65100 to 65400 (65100

The result: there is a table of two columns. The first one is the categories of x; the second column is the sum of according values of v.

Thank you!!!

`# data`

set.seed(1)

x <- sample(seq(65100, 67900, by=5), 100, replace = TRUE)

v <- sample(seq(1000, 8000), 100, replace = TRUE)

tabl <- data.frame(x=c(x), v=c(v))

attach(tabl)

#categories

seq(((min(x) - min(x)%%300) + 300), ((max(x) - max(x)%%300) + 300), by =300)

Try this (no package needed):

```
s <- seq(65100, max(tabl$x)+300, 300)
tabl$col = as.vector(cut(tabl$x, breaks = s, labels = 1:10))
df <- aggregate(v~col, tabl, sum)
# col v
# 1 1 33234
# 2 2 44805
# 3 3 45493
# 4 4 77865
# 5 5 43887
# 6 6 22893
# 7 7 64079
# 8 8 66517
# 9 9 61738
# 10 10 1722
