It’s time to dive into the programming part!

## Example: Create Multiplication Table Using a Manually Defined Function

In this example, I’ll demonstrate how to compute and create a multiplication table in the R programming language.

For this task, we first have to create a user-defined function:

```fun_multtab <- function(x, len) {    # Create function for multiplication table
for(i in 1:len) {
print(paste(x, "*", i, "=", x * i))
}
}```

Next, we can apply this manually defined function to create a multiplication table for a certain input value with a certain length.

The example below constructs a multiplication table for the value 5 up to the multiplier 10:

```fun_multtab(x = 5, len = 10)         # Apply user-defined function
#  "5 * 1 = 5"
#  "5 * 2 = 10"
#  "5 * 3 = 15"
#  "5 * 4 = 20"
#  "5 * 5 = 25"
#  "5 * 6 = 30"
#  "5 * 7 = 35"
#  "5 * 8 = 40"
#  "5 * 9 = 45"
#  "5 * 10 = 50"```

We can insert basically every input we want to our function. Let’s execute it once again with the values 3 and 7:

```fun_multtab(x = 3, len = 7)          # Different input values
#  "3 * 1 = 3"
#  "3 * 2 = 6"
#  "3 * 3 = 9"
#  "3 * 4 = 12"
#  "3 * 5 = 15"
#  "3 * 6 = 18"
#  "3 * 7 = 21"```

Looks good!
