```Hi,
Not sure if this is what you wanted:
t.control=function(m, a){(1-exp(-a*m)*((1-(1/30))*m))}
t.sham=function(m, a, d){(1-exp(-a*(1-d)*m)*((1-(1/30))*m))}
t.control(2,2)
# 0.9645898
t.sham(2,2,0.1)
# 0.9471741
A.K.

Hello everyone. I am quite new to R and I would appreciate some help in figuring out what I am doing wrong.

 0.9816844

As you can see the values I am getting for t.control and t.sham are larger in the "with cost" scenario and this shouldn't be the case. (the cost is 1-1/30*m). Is there something wrong I did when defining t.sham and t.control in the "with cost" section that I am failing to see?
