LaTex tables in R/Rmarkdown file

#1

Hello,

I have this LaTex table from this link below:
I put it into either a R or Rmarkdown file.
It doesn't produce the result but gives squiggly red error lines that
I have to fix. How can I run the bottom LaTex code in R or Rmarkdown ?
Please advise !

\begin{table}[h!]
\begin{center}
\caption{Multirow table.}
\label{tab:table1}
\begin{tabular}{l|S|r}
\textbf{Value 1} & \textbf{Value 2} & \textbf{Value 3}\
\alpha & \beta & \gamma \
\hline

Hey, what about this one?

---
title: "Untitled"
output: pdf_document
header-includes:
- \usepackage{caption}
- \usepackage{multirow}
---

some text

\begin{center}
\captionof{table}{Multirow Table.}
\begin{tabular}{l|l|r}
\textbf{Value 1} & \textbf{Value 2} & \textbf{Value 3} \\
$\alpha$ & $\beta$ & $\gamma$ \\ \hline
\multirow{2}{*}{12} & 1110.1 & a \\
 & 10.1 & b \\ \hline
3 & 23.113231 & c \\
4 & 25.113231 & d
\end{tabular}
\end{center}

some text

This yields the following try.pdf (73.3 KB).

What exactly do you mean by this?

caption and multirow are LaTeX packages. If these are not installed on your device, tinytex will install them while knitting.

If you use some other TeX distribution, I think they can do that too. I used MikTeX earlier and it had an option to install packages on the fly.
