The number of items is not relevant except insofar as your vector of
probabilities is in the same order as the other vector and the same length.

If for example you had a vector of test scores for 10,000 tests and you
calculated the probability in the data of having a 100, then the probability
of a 99 and so on, then you could make another vector of 10,000 giving the
probability of the corresponding entries.

So before calling ggplot, assuming you have two vectors called orig and
prob, you make a data.frame like

Df <- data.frame(orig=orig, prob=prob)

You use that in ggplot.

You can of course add additional columns. Or if your data is in another
format, do things like long to wide conversion and many other things.

If you already have a data.frame with one or more columns including orig,
you can attache the probabilities with something as simple as:

Df$prob = prob

If you are using ggplot, you may as well be using elements of the tidyverse
that provide a different take on how to do some things compared to base R
but that is not something easily discussed here.

Yes - I could have done that but I have over 5,000 calculated probabilities.
So yes a little more detail would have helped. I'm needing to add those
probability back into the original data.frame from which the model was
created as I'm going  to be using ggplot2 so I need the probabilities and
original dataframe to be one.

Jeff R, it would be helpful if your intent was understood.

For example, did you want output as a column of labels c("A", "B", "C") and
another adjacent of c(0.0011566127, 0.0009267028, 0.0081623324) then you
could do:

data.frame(labels=c("A", "B", "C"), data=c(0.0011566127, 0.0009267028,
  labels         data
1      A 0.0011566127
2      B 0.0009267028
3      C 0.0081623324

If you wanted your columns labeled with the data in multiple columns, try

> result <- data.frame(t(c(0.0011566127, 0.0009267028, 0.0081623324))) 
> result
           X1           X2          X3
1 0.001156613 0.0009267028 0.008162332
> names(result) <- c("A", "B", "C")
> result
            A            B           C
1 0.001156613 0.0009267028 0.008162332

But these are not solutions to your specified problem unless you explain
properly what you want to do and the exact expected output.

How do I add a numeric class to a data .frame. 


For example, I have calculated the following probabilities


           1            2            3

0.0011566127 0.0009267028 0.0081623324


How would I add them back into my data.frame for example


My_df <- data.frame(col_1 = c('A', 'B', 'C')) such that I end up with


col_1                   col_2

        A  0.0011566127


Though I could use a cbind.
