How do you use the Summarize function in R?
The combination of group_by and summarize is frequently done in R using the pipe operator. The pipe operator redirects the output of one function as the input of the next.

How does Group_by work in R?
Group by one or more variables
Most data operations are done on groups defined by variables. group_by() takes an existing tbl and converts it into a grouped tbl where operations are performed “by group”. ungroup() removes grouping.
How do I aggregate data?
To aggregate data is to compile and summarize data; to disaggregate data is to break down aggregated data into component parts or smaller units of data.
What is N () in R?
n=n() means that a variable named n will be assigned the number of rows (think number of observations) in the summarized data. the %>% is read as “and then” and is way of listing your functions sequentially rather then nesting them.
