# Helper Functions

### Formatting Helper Functions

The fmtr package also contains several formatting helper functions. These functions help with common formatting styles seen in statistical reports. For example, a range from 1 to 10 is commonly displayed as “1 - 10”, with a hyphen separating the minimum from the maximum. To accomplish this formatting easily, the package provides a fmt_range() function that both calculates the range and formats it in the desired manner.

Below is a complete list of the formatting helper functions. See the help documentation for additional details:

• fmt_range()
• fmt_n()
• fmt_quantile_range()
• fmt_median()
• fmt_cnt_pct()
• fmt_mean_sd()
