4 Assigning a Vector to a Variable In order to assign a vector to a value, we use a ‘c’ (which stands for ‘combine’ or ‘concatenate’) along with the entries of the vector inside normal brackets, separated by commas. For example, a <- c(3,2,1,0) We have some other special commands that we can also use. g. h4; 5; 6; 7; 8i we can write the starting and finishing numbers separated by a colon. a <- 4:8 We can also use seq() for this purpose. g. e. 4, 9, 14, 19. Sometimes we will need to first define an empty vector, or a vector with default starting entries.

4 (Harmonic Mean). x/ D n x iD1 i ! 1 D 1 x1 C 1 x2 n C C 1 xn : If any of the inputs is 0, we define the HM to give an output of 0.
