# How to find the index of an element in a vector in R?

There are three ways to find the index of an element in a vector.

## Example

> x <- sample(1:10) > x [1] 8 10 9 6 2 1 4 7 5 3

Using which

> which(x == 6)[[1]] [1] 4

Here we found the index of 6 in vector x.

Using match

> match(c(4,8),x) [1] 7 1

Here we found the index of 4 and 8 in vector x.

Using which with %in% > which(x %in% c(2,4)) [1] 5 7

Here we found the index of 2 and 4 in vector x.
