# R Programming: Sort a given data frame by multiple column(s)

## R Programming: Data frame Exercise-12 with Solution

Write a R program to sort a given data frame by multiple column(s).

Sample Solution :

R Programming Code :

``````exam_data = data.frame(
name = c('Anastasia', 'Dima', 'Katherine', 'James', 'Emily', 'Michael', 'Matthew', 'Laura', 'Kevin', 'Jonas'),
score = c(12.5, 9, 16.5, 12, 9, 20, 14.5, 13.5, 8, 19),
attempts = c(1, 3, 2, 3, 2, 3, 1, 1, 2, 1),
qualify = c('yes', 'no', 'yes', 'no', 'no', 'yes', 'yes', 'no', 'no', 'yes')
)
print("Original dataframe:")
print(exam_data)
print("dataframe after sorting 'name' and 'score' columns:")
exam_data = exam_data[with(exam_data, order(name, score)), ]
print(exam_data)
``````

Sample Output:

```[1] "Original dataframe:"
name score attempts qualify
1  Anastasia  12.5        1     yes
2       Dima   9.0        3      no
3  Katherine  16.5        2     yes
4      James  12.0        3      no
5      Emily   9.0        2      no
6    Michael  20.0        3     yes
7    Matthew  14.5        1     yes
8      Laura  13.5        1      no
9      Kevin   8.0        2      no
10     Jonas  19.0        1     yes
[1] "dataframe after sorting 'name' and 'score' columns:"
name score attempts qualify
1  Anastasia  12.5        1     yes
2       Dima   9.0        3      no
5      Emily   9.0        2      no
4      James  12.0        3      no
10     Jonas  19.0        1     yes
3  Katherine  16.5        2     yes
9      Kevin   8.0        2      no
8      Laura  13.5        1      no
7    Matthew  14.5        1     yes
6    Michael  20.0        3     yes
```
