hello my problem is that i have 11 value for any variable suppose i=1:11 and have another variable suppose b=2:12 also has 11 values now my question is that i want to find out value for i=1 for z=i*b total 11 values and for i=2 another 11 value of z and so on how i can use nested loop

*No products are associated with this question.*

Accepted answer

try this:

z = zeros(11,11); for a=1:11 for b=2:12 z(a,b)=a*b; end end z(:,1)=[];

You declare z as 11 x 11, but then you use it as 11 x 12.

Because of the way MATLAB handles assignments to non-existant locations, this will work, but it does indicate a logic fault on your part.

Answer by Babak on 18 Dec 2012

Z = zeors(11,11);

for i=1:11 for b=2:12

z=i*b;

end end

sir now if my varible i=0.1:.11 and b also in point then how it will save

If the number you're multiplying by is a fractional number, like 0.1 or 0.11 then you'll have to separate your index from your number, like I think you originally had in your message where you had a and b instead of i and b. You could just make the loop index from 1 to 11 and then create the array index from it like arrayIndex = i / 10 and then use arrayIndex in z() or wherever.

It's not clear what you want. Please give an example with 2 11-element arrays, a and b, and what output(s) you want.

for i=1 I want 11 values of i*b in one row for i=2 I want 11 values of i*b in one row for i=3 I want 11 values of i*b in one row AND SO ON..............
