# How to create vector in R with a sequence of numbers?

Creating a numeric vector is the first step towards learning R programming and there are many ways to do that but if we want to generate a sequence of number then it is a bit different thing, not totally different. We can create a vector with a sequence of numbers by using − if the sequence of numbers needs to have only the difference of 1, otherwise seq function can be used.

## Example

Live Demo

> x1<-1:50
> x1

## Output

[1] 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25

## Example

Live Demo

> x2<-50:1
> x2

## Output

[1] 50 49 48 47 46 45 44 43 42 41 40 39 38 37 36 35 34 33 32 31 30 29 28 27 26
