Extract certain rows of data set in R, we will learn how to extract specific rows of a data set using the `slice` function of the `dplyr` package in R.

This function is useful when you need to extract specific rows of a large data set and perform further analysis on those rows.

Creation of Example Data

We will use the following data frame as an example:

```data <- data.frame(x1 = 1:5,
x2 = LETTERS[1:5],
x3 = 5)
data
#   x1 x2 x3
# 1  1  A  5
# 2  2  B  5
# 3  3  C  5
# 4  4  D  5
# 5  5  E  5```

This data frame contains five rows and three columns. We will use this data frame to demonstrate how to use the `slice` function.

Example: Application of slice Function

The `slice` function can be used to extract specific rows of a data frame.

To use the `slice` function, we need to specify the name of our input data and the row index of all rows we want to retain.

For example, we can extract the first, third, and fifth row of the example data as follows:

```slice(data, c(1, 3, 5))
#   x1 x2 x3
# 1  1  A  5
# 2  3  C  5
# 3  5  E  5```

In this example, we extracted the first, third, and fifth row of the example data.

Example: Extracting Specific Rows with a Condition

We can also use the `slice` function to extract specific rows based on a condition.

For example, we can extract all rows where the value in column `x1` is greater than or equal to `3` as follows:

```slice(data, x1 >= 3)
#   x1 x2 x3
# 2  2  B  5
# 3  3  C  5
# 4  4  D  5
# 5  5  E  5```

In this example, we extracted all rows where the value in column `x1` is greater than or equal to `3`.

## Conclusion

In this tutorial, we have learned how to use the `slice` function of the `dplyr` package in R to extract specific rows of a data set.

We have demonstrated how to use the `slice` function to extract specific rows based on a condition and how to extract specific rows by specifying the row index.

With these examples, you can easily extract specific rows of a large data set and perform further analysis on those rows.
