# How to Repeat Vectors in R

The `rep` function allows us to repeat R vectors by specifying how many times we want to repeat the whole vector, or how many times we want to repeat each element of the vector.

### Repeat a Vector n times

Assume that our vector is the `x<-c(1,2,3,4,5)` and we want to repeat it 3 times:

```x<-c(1,2,3,4,5)
rep(x,times=3)
```

Output:

```[1] 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5
```

### Repeat each Vector Element n times

Let’s say that we want to repeat each vector element 3 times:

```x<-c(1,2,3,4,5)
rep(x,each=3)
```

Output:

```[1] 1 1 1 2 2 2 3 3 3 4 4 4 5 5 5
```

Note that you can use the `length.out` when you want to repeat the vector until you reach a specific number of elements. Finally, there is another trick where you can specify how many times each element will be repeated. For example:

```x<-c(1,2,3,4,5)

# repeat the first and second element 1 time
# the third and forth element 2 times
# and the fifth element 3 times
rep(x,times=c(1,1,2,2,3))
```

Output:

```[1] 1 2 3 3 4 4 5 5 5
```
