Hi dlabes,

❝ Can you please elaborate: What is the important distinction between rank and order you detected?

❝ I didn't got it.



x=c(6,7,5,8)
rank(x)
order(x)


The rank output is:
2,3,1,4

Which means: #3 comes first (rank=1), then #2, then #1, then #4


The order output is:
3,1,2,4

Which means: When sorted #3 (=5) is first, then #1 (=6), then #2 (=7) and finally #4 (=8).

Pass or fail!
