The gender of each patient can be identified from the last field of the ID variable with ‘M’ for Male or ‘F’
for Female. The gender field can be in either upper or lower cases. Some of the IDs start with an ‘x’ and
some don’t. For example, ‘x13260M’ and ‘13260M’ refer to the same person.
Write a function, getMaxSBP, that takes one argument, which is the name of the input data. The function
returns a data frame that contains only one observation for each patient with the following variables:
newID : is created by using the numerical fields of the ID variable. For example, if ID is ‘x13260M’ or
‘13260M’, then NEWID is ‘13260’.
