# How to create a random sample of week days in R?

To create a vector of weekdays we can use the command weekdays(Sys.Date()+0:6) and if we want to create a random sample of week days then sample function can be used along with the weekdays command. For example, if we want to create a random sample of 20 days then it can be done as sample(weekdays(Sys.Date()+0:6),20,replace=TRUE).
