How to get rid of this error!! this is my code below for

for i = 18:-1:13

test=ff(i) [B,A] = oct3dsgn(ff(i),Fs,N); if narg y = filter(B,A,x); test=sum(y) P(i) = sum(y.^2)/m;

If the variable y is not a vector (if it is a matrix with more than 1 row and column), then sum(y.^2) is not a scalar. It looks like you are trying to assign it into a single element of P.

Ya y is a row matrix. it contains more than one row or shall i double p

Seeing the code, which produces an error, does not allow to fix it as long as the intention is not clear.

The dimensions of the used variables matter, so please post all required details.

Ya Y is a complex number a+Bi so does it occupy more than one cell after performing the operation and Y is a row matrix.

i am squaring all the elements and then summing them so do need to assign different memory allocation different

Fs = 25600; % Sampling Frequency
