By(num, 2) + } [ 15 ] RefresheR It is very common in R to want to apply a particular function to every element of a vector. Instead of using a loop to iterate over the elements of a vector, as we would do in many other languages, we use a function called sapply() to perform this. sapply() takes a vector and a function as its argument. It then applies the function to every element and returns a vector of results. even() which takes only one argument. If you wanted to find the digits that are divisible by three, it would require a little bit more work.
