Problem :

I am very new to r programming. I have the array and I want to implement the below method:

x<-function(b){
  if (b>0){
    b/sum(b)
  }
  else 1
}

This method is written to check if there is any value which is larger than the 0 and if it says yes then it needs to divide each element by a sum of a total.

Or else it should just be 1.

But I face below warning message:

“Warning message: r the condition has length > 1 and only the first element will be used”.
How can I fix the above error message?

Solution :

I had also faced such kind of errors when I began programming. I can see your if statement is currently not vectorized. To make it vectorized if statements you must use the ifelse. In your method you can write it as shown below:
x <- function(b){
if (any(b>0)){
  b/sum(b)
}
  else 1
}

or you can try the short vectorised version as shown below

ifelse(b > 0, b/sum(b), 1)

It is upto you which way you want to use, as your first function gives you the output vector of length 1 (in the else part) and the ifelse gives you the output vector of length which is equal to length of b.
