`margin.table(x, margin = NULL)`

##### Arguments

- x
an array

packaged up for
newbies, except that if `margin`

has length zero you get
`sum(x)`

.

is copied to the
output table, except in the summation case.

`prop.table`

and `addmargins`

.

##### Examples

`library(base)`

```
# NOT RUN {
m <- matrix(1:4, 2)
margin.table(m, 1)
margin.table(m, 2)
# }
```
