Hi everyone,

Im quite new to R an I have the following Question:

I would like to define Variables which I can add and multiply etc. and that R can simplyfy the terms.

The variables should stand for integers. For example I would like to have an entry in an array with variable z and if I add b+z the field should now contain 2z+b. Or if the field contains 1 and I add z the field should contain 1+z.

How can I solve this problem?

I tried to set z=integer and then for example matrix[1,1]=i But this does only work if I assign a value for z first.

I am very grateful for any help.

Thank you very much!
