Hi there
the folowing code is for training dataset (trPima) and testing dataset (tePima) I want to use k-nearest neighbours but first I need to scale the data so that the range of the 7 explanatory is roughly 1.I have tried to the ranges calculate
but i don't know how to chose a suitable rough rescaling.

my code is:

> mins <- c(0, 56, 38, 7, 18.2, 0.085, 21)
> maxs <- c(14, 199, 110, 99, 47.9, 2.228, 63)
> rangs <- maxs - mins
> rangs
[1] 14.000 143.000 72.000 92.000 29.700 2.143 42.000

and I want to fill in the following (?).

scaletrPima<-data.frame(npreg=npreg/?,glu=glu/?,bp=bp/?,skin=skin/?,bmi=bmi/?,ped=ped/?,age=age/?)

> summary(tePima)
> mins <- c(0, 65, 24, 7, 19.4, 0.085, 21)
> maxs <- c(17, 197, 110, 63, 67.1, 2.42, 81)
> rangs <- maxs - mins
> rangs
[1] 17.000 132.000 86.000 56.000 47.700 2.335 60.000

scaletestx<-data.frame(npreg=npreg/?,glu=glu/?,bp=bp/?,skin=skin/?,bmi=bmi/?,ped=ped/?,age=age/?)
and again to fill in the (?)

Note that both the training and the test datasets need to be scaled using the same scale factors.
Any suggests???

Thanks in advance
