## C.1 Question 1

• On R start-up, several sample datasets are loaded
• Two of them are:
• state.name—Names of US states
• state.area—Corresponding state area size, in $$mi^2$$ (square miles)
• Create a vector of state area sizes in $$km^2$$
• Print a subset of state names for states whose areas are greater than 300,000 $$km^2$$ and smaller than 700,000 $$km^2$$
• Note: you need to convert from $$mi^2$$ to $$km^2$$!
## [1] "California" "Montana"    "New Mexico" "Texas"

## C.2 Question 2

• Use the state.name and state.area vectors and write an expression that prints the name of the state which has the smallest area in the US
• Note: do not use the specific values 39 or "Rhode Island" in your code!
