# [R] frequency table with custom bands

```Hi Jim,

I am gettng the error message that the breaks are not unique: (R 2.15)
table(cut(Prices,breaks=Bands))
Error in cut.default(Prices, breaks = Bands) : 'breaks' are not unique

So, I tried using:
res<-rbind(as.data.frame(table(cut(Prices,breaks=seq1))),as.data.frame(table(cut(Prices,breaks=seq2))))
res2<-apply(res,2,function(x) gsub("\\(|\\]","",gsub("[,]","-",x)))
res3<-within(as.data.frame(res2),{Freq<-as.numeric(Freq)})
#   Var1 Freq
#1   0-5    1
#2  5-10    6
#3 10-15    2
#4 15-20    2
#5 20-25    6
#6 25-30    2

A.K.

?cut

try this:

> seq1 = seq(0, 95, by = 5)
> seq2 = seq(100, 1000, by = 100)
> Bands = c(seq1, seq2)
> Prices = sample(1:1000, 200, replace=F)
> table(cut(Prices, breaks = Bands))
