Hi,
I've imported a text file to R studio. The file contains numbers. how can I order my file by largest to smallest? And then select and display the top 10 biggest numbers?

The numbers are stored in a variable called V1.

You want to sort in "descending" order

Then use the "head" function to grab the top 10

Thanks for the reply. Is there an R dedicated section  on here? I could not find one.

No there is not. The Miscellaneous Programming and Math & Science topic areas are where I would recommend posting R questions. I lot of the experts that I know who use R monitor those topics.
