Palmerpenguins Dataset Question

I'm learning how to use R Visualization and would like to create a ggplot of the palmerpenguins dataset but I am unable to get it onto my work. how do I go about it?
This is what I have done:
install.packages("tidyverse")
library("tidyverse")
install.packages("ggplot2")
library("ggplot2")
so how to i get the palmerpenguins dataset so i can create a ggplot from it?

Hi @Chemu , Welcome!

For use the palmerpenguins dataset you need to install the library palmerpenguins

# Install the palmerpenguins package
install.packages("palmerpenguins")
install.packages("ggplot2")

# Load the palmerpenguins package
library(palmerpenguins)
library(ggplot2)

# Access the palmerpenguins dataset
data(penguins)

# View the structure of the penguins dataset
str(penguins)

penguins

An easy sccater plot with ggplot:

ggplot(data = penguins, aes(x = bill_length_mm, y = body_mass_g)) +
  geom_point() +
  labs(x = "Bill Length (mm)", 
       y = "Body Mass (g)",
       title = "Penguin Bill Length vs. Body Mass")

After running the above code this is the feedback I have received:
ggplot(data = penguins, aes(x = bill_length_mm, y = body_mass_g)) +

  • geom_point() +
  • labs(x = "Bill Length (mm)",
  •    y = "Body Mass (g)",
    
  •    title = "Penguin Bill Length vs. Body Mass")
    

Error in ggplot(data = penguins, aes(x = bill_length_mm, y = body_mass_g)) :
could not find function "ggplot"

You need to add

library(ggplot2)

to the script before calling ggplot(). You may need first to

install.packages("ggplot2")
