```Here is a shorter way:

> x <- c(2.2, 2.4, 2.6, 3.2, 3.4, 3.6)
> # get integer part
> x.i <- as.integer(x)
> # get fractional part
> x.f <- x %% 1
> result <- x.i + x.f * 1.25
> result
[1] 2.25 2.50 2.75 3.25 3.50 3.75
> as.integer(x) + (x %% 1) * 1.25
[1] 2.25 2.50 2.75 3.25 3.50 3.75

What is the problem that you are trying to solve?
Tell me what you want to do, not how you want to do it.
