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)) } } |

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 # [1] "5 * 1 = 5" # [1] "5 * 2 = 10" # [1] "5 * 3 = 15" # [1] "5 * 4 = 20" # [1] "5 * 5 = 25" # [1] "5 * 6 = 30" # [1] "5 * 7 = 35" # [1] "5 * 8 = 40" # [1] "5 * 9 = 45" # [1] "5 * 10 = 50" |

fun_multtab(x = 5, len = 10) # Apply user-defined function # [1] "5 * 1 = 5" # [1] "5 * 2 = 10" # [1] "5 * 3 = 15" # [1] "5 * 4 = 20" # [1] "5 * 5 = 25" # [1] "5 * 6 = 30" # [1] "5 * 7 = 35" # [1] "5 * 8 = 40" # [1] "5 * 9 = 45" # [1] "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 # [1] "3 * 1 = 3" # [1] "3 * 2 = 6" # [1] "3 * 3 = 9" # [1] "3 * 4 = 12" # [1] "3 * 5 = 15" # [1] "3 * 6 = 18" # [1] "3 * 7 = 21" |

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

Looks good!
