# [R] How to Save the residuals of an LM object greater or less than a certin value to an R object?

```Residuals are stored as a numeric vector. The R software comes with a document "Introduction to R" that discusses basic math functions and logical operators that can create logical vectors:

abs( stdresiduals ) > 2.5

It also discusses indexing using logical vectors:

stdresiduals[ abs( stdresiduals ) > 2.5 ]

Note that in most cases it is worth going  the extra step of making your example reproducible [1][2][3] because many problems arise from issues in the data or in code that you don't think is broken.
