Good morning Sarah
Indeed the instruction you provide is something that R does not understand. Essentially everything done in R involves using functions (commands). You have not provided a function on the right-hand side of your assignment, causing the error. My guess is that you want to create a vector containing those two values. That would be accomplished using the 'c()' function
x <- c(0.5, 0.6)
I suggest you spend a bit of time learning a bit about the fundamentals of R. Lots of free resources online for this, such as
After becoming familiar with general syntax, you could pay a visit to Chapter 7 of our online training materials to learn the basics of performing distance sampling analyses using R:
I am brand new to Program R. I am trying to learn to perform data analysis for my thesis. I'm looking through different websites to get a feel for the program and practice some codes. However, every time I've done a simple command like x <- (0.5, 0.6), the program highlights the comma with a red x saying "unexpected token "," ". Can anybody explain why that is?
