How to Compute Euler’s Number in R (Example)
In this article, I’ll illustrate how to get Euler’s number’ in the R programming language.
The tutorial consists of this content:
Let’s dive into it.
Example: Computing Euler’s Number (e) in R
The following code illustrates how to get Euler’s number (e) using the exp() function provided by the basic installation of the R programming language.
exp(1) # Euler's number (e) # 2.718282
We can also use the exp command to compute e^2 by simply inserting a 2 within the exp function:
exp(2) # Euler's number to the power of 2 (e^2) # 7.389056
The previous R codes can be used to return Euler’s number, because the exp function computes the exponentiation with base e.
