Hi R users,
I have a question about manipulating the data.
For example, there are several such data frames or matrices, and I want to
calculate the average value from all the data frames or matrices. How to do
it? Also, should I convert them to data frame or matrix first? Right now,
when I use typeof() function, each one is a list.

Are you trying to take the mean over all cells, or over rows/columns within each dataframe. Also, are these different dataframes stored within a list or are they standalone?

I'm trying to get a new dataframe or whatever to call, which has the same
structure with each file as listed above. For each cell in the new
dataframe or the new file, it is the average value from former dataframes
at the same location. Thanks.

It’s not clear to me what your actual structure is. Can you provide str(object)? Assuming it is a list, and you want the mean over all cells or columns, you might want like this:
myData < vector("list", 3)
for(i in 1:3){
myData[[i]] < matrix(rnorm(100), 10, 10)
}
### mean over all cells
sapply(myData, function(x) mean(x))
### mean over all columns
sapply(myData, function(x) colMeans(x))

I meant for each cell, it takes the average from other dataframes at the
same cell. I don't know how to deal with row names and col names though, so
it has the error message.

If you want the mean of each element across you list of matrices the
following should provide what you are looking for where Reduce sums all
your matrix elements across matrices and the simply divided my the number
of matrices for the elementwise mean.
Reduce(`+`, mylist)/length(mylist)

Thanks very much, it works. But how to round the values to have only 1
decimal digit or 2 decimal digits? I think by dividing, the values are
double type now. Thanks again.

Just call 'round' on your results then at your desired number of digits.

Yes, that means to control decimal numbers. For example, use round(2.3122,
digits=1), it gets 2.3
