- > is the prompt sign in R

- The assignment operators are the left arrow with dash <- and equal sign =.

> x <- 20 assigns the value 20 to x.

> x = 20 assigns the value 20 to x.

Initially only <- was available in R.

- > x = 20 assigns the value 20 to x.

> y = x + 2 assigns the value 2 * x to y.

> z = x + y assigns the value x + y to z.
