Your Turn

  1. Working in the console, install the Tidyverse package using the code install.packages("tidyverse")

  2. Check in the Packages tab on the bottom right panel to confirm that the tidyverse package has been installed successfully.

If you get any messages from R about conflicts when loading packages, don't worry about them for now.

Also, if you are a Windows user and get messages about downloading RTools, you can safely ignore these as well. You should not need RTools to install packages used in this course.
