# [R] Fw: passing different sample sizes

```Your code is full of syntactic errors. What do you think 1.71(se) means?

After you clean up your code, something like this might be what you want:

out <- lapply(seq(40,500,by = 25), f)

To get plots, just stick in a plot statement after you define m and d.

Have you gone through any R tutorials? You seem to be confused about basics
that tutorials could help you with.  This list is not meant to replace such

Cheers,
Bert
