n <- 100
x <- rnorm(n)
x[sample(n, 4)] <- NA
#  4

(Be careful: R is case sensitive (z != Z).)
I'm not really clear what you want here. "%*%" is matrix multiplication
and "*" is elementwise multiplication. Also using "c" makes a vector or
length "n = length(x) + length(y)". This implies that "A" above "p x n"
(i.e. p rows, n columns) and the result "w" would be "p x 1". Please
provide an example of what you expect to see by the multiplication.
