How to compare the values of two vectors in R?, Using match() and %in% we can compare vectors

Today, we’ll talk about comparing two R vectors to see what components (values).

Here, we have two choices:

The indexes of common elements are returned by the match () function in R.

- Indicating if a value from the first vector was present in the second.
- The percent in percent operation produces a vector of True or False answers.

## Finding Values in Vectors using R Match

Starting with the R match() function, let’s go on.

Value<-c(15,13,12,14,12,15,30)

The first position of the matching value is returned by the r match example.

match(12, Value) [1] 3

Example of an r match with multiple values

match (c(13,12), Value) [1] 2 3

The initial position of each of the two values is returned by the R match function when we pass it a vector of multiple values.

## Operator – Boolean Equivalent for percent in percent

Do you only require a True/False response?

Use the percent in percent operator, if possible. Similar operations are carried out, and the result is returned as a Boolean indicator indicating if the value is present.

**For an example of the R percent in percent operator**

by utilizing the percent in percent operator, check for a single value.

14 %in% Value [1] TRUE

Utilize the percent in percent operator to verify a vector of multiple values.

c(10, 12) %in% Value [1] FALSE TRUE

what values the percent in percent operator treats when it can’t

c(10, 12, 14) %in% Value [1] FALSE TRUE TRUE

## Summary

The percent in percent operator and R Match; We can compare the values of two vectors using these two tools.
