If the first column were a factor, we’d get a factor. The result differs when you use the single-bracket notation, as in suburbs[1] or suburbs[c(1,3)]. You still get the requested columns, but R wraps them in a data frame. info A major source of confusion is that suburbs[[1]] and suburbs[1] look similar but produce very different results: suburbs[[1]] This returns one column. suburbs[1] This returns a data frame, and the data frame contains exactly one column. , nk)]. ) construct because there is only one n.

631029 The lm function lets you specify a data frame by using the data parameter. , u, v, and w) and a response variable (y). You believe there is a linear relationship between the predictors and the response, and you want to perform a linear regression on the data. Solution Use the lm function. info Discussion Multiple linear regression is the obvious generalization of simple linear regression. It allows multiple predictor variables instead of one predictor variable and still uses OLS to compute the coefficients of a linear equation.

If your data frame contains more than two columns, you will get multiple scatter plots, which might or might not be useful. To get a scatter plot, your data must be numeric. Recall that plot is a polymorphic function, so, if the arguments are nonnumeric, it will create some other type of plot. 18, for example, which creates box plots from factors.
