# How to remove a particular value from a vector in R?

To remove a particular value from a vector, we can use negation of value.

For example, if we have a vector called V that contains repetitive values starting from 1 to 10 and if we want to remove all 10s from V then we can use the command given below −

V<-V[V!=10]

## Example 1

In order to remove 0 from vector x1, use the code given below −

x1<-rpois(100,2)
x1

If you execute the above given code, it generates the following output −

[1] 1 1 1 1 3 1 1 2 3 4 2 2 1 2 2 5 2 1 4 1 2 1 2 3 1 3 1 1 4 4 3 3 4 2 0 1 1
[38] 2 1 0 0 2 5 1 1 3 1 1 2 1 1 4 1 4 0 1 0 2 2 1 2 2 1 4 2 2 2 5 4 2 0 0 1 8
[75] 1 2 4 1 2 0 0 1 0 0 2 4 1 3 1 1 3 1 3 0 2 3 1 2 8 4

Now, to remove 0 from vector x1, add the following code to the above code −

x1<-rpois(100,2)
x1<-x1[x1!=0]
x1

## Output

If you execute all the above given codes as a single program, it generates the following output −

[1] 1 1 1 1 3 1 1 2 3 4 2 2 1 2 2 5 2 1 4 1 2 1 2 3 1 3 1 1 4 4 3 3 4 2 1 1 2 1
[39] 2 5 1 1 3 1 1 2 1 1 4 1 4 1 2 2 1 2 2 1 4 2 2 2 5 4 2 1 8 1 2 4 1 2 1 2 4 1
[77] 3 1 1 3 1 3 2 3 1 2 8 4

## Example 2
