Square of the column in R is calculated using ‘^’ operator. Let’s see how to calculate square of a column in R with example
First let’s create the dataframe
df1 = data.frame( Name = c('George','Andrea', 'Micheal','Maggie','Ravi','Xien','Jalpa'), Grade_score=c(4,6,2,9,5,7,8), Mathematics1_score=c(45,78,44,89,66,49,72), Science_score=c(56,52,45,88,33,90,47))
df1 will be
Square of the column in R
Square of the column Grade_score is calculated using ^() function as shown below.
## Square of the column in R df1$power_2_Grade ='^'(df1$Grade_score,2) df1
So the resultant dataframe will be
