Students are however playing to consummate the device in Microsoft Excel (or a corresponding playing open-spring spreadsheet implement) besides. There are no technical limitations in either R or Excel that would fibre the students to elect one platform aggravate another. The submitted R code/Excel worksheet should depute a abundantly workable representation. Students are encouraged to eschew performance of any particular R/Excel loads for the assignment and adhere to using criterion R/Excel libraries.
