With the help of tidyverse: how to rename a column to a variable name

0 votes

I have taken a simple dataset "mtcars"

image

Now I want to change the column "disp" to "Displacement"

I can do easily by

colnames(mtcars)[3] = "Displacement"

But I want to use tidyverse so it can be used in a pipe?
