Removing Elements from a Vector in R

Steven Sanderson wants to leave one of these things out:

Working with vectors is one of the fundamental aspects of R programming. Sometimes, you need to remove specific elements from a vector to clean your data or prepare it for analysis. This post will guide you through several methods to achieve this, using base R, dplyr, and data.table. We’ll look at examples for both numeric and character vectors and explain the code in a straightforward manner. By the end, you’ll have a clear understanding of how to manipulate your vectors efficiently. Let’s dive in!

Read on for three pairs of examples, one for numeric vectors and one for character vectors.
