## Higher Order Functions Exercises

Higher order functions are functions that take other functions as arguments or return functions as their result. In this set of exercises we will focus on the former. R has a set of built-in higher order functions: Map, Reduce, Filter, Find, Position, Negate. They enable us to complete complex operations by using simple single-purpose functions […]
