```Thanks for the reply Jorge,

that works BUT the reason I didn't use it, is because I need to calculate
the mean and Standard deviation for S1,S2,S3 and S4 in each sample. which
means I'll have 5 means for S1, and 5 means for S2 and 5 means for S3 and 5
means for S4 (and at the end I have to get the average of the means for each
'S').
I used the following:

for(i in 1:5) {temp<-sample(A3,3, replace=F)
+ Trans=t(temp)
+ Avg=mean(Trans)
+ show(temp)
+ show(Trans)
+ show(Avg)}

the reason I used Transpose is to get the R to give me the mean for S's. but
what I get is just one mean for each sample. not the mean for each S.
any suggestion how to do it?

thanks again for all your help
