Please upload your final completed lab on the Assignments page in Canvas.
You are welcome and expected to ask for help from the instructors if you get stuck: Please also come to the R Bootcamp on Friday!
In this lab, we will work with data from the Harry Potter series of moving pictures.

Enter the production budget for the first movie.
Assign this value to an object.
Create a named vector of the years the movies were released.
Create a named vector of the production budget for each movie.
Create a named vector of the worldwide box office takings for each movie.
How much income did each movie take in the worldwide box office (i.e., over and above the production budget)?
How many times the production budget did each movie take in the domestic box office?
You will need to write R code to answer each of the questions.
Please format your answers as follows:
Copy and paste each question, commented out. This ensures that we know which answer corresponds to which question.
Write your R code answer below each question.
It should look something like this:
# LAB: Basic Building Blocks # Simon Queenborough # 1. What year was the first Harry Potter movie released? 2001 # 2. Assign this value to an object x <- 2001
You are permitted to submit your answers as many times as you like within 2 weeks.
Answers will be graded two or three times a week and re-opened if you do not score 100%.
Each lab will close after 2 weeks and final grades for that lab computed and entered into the Canvas gradebook.
