Richard Brown submitted Solution 38859 to Problem 10. Determine whether a vector is monotonically increasing

Richard Brown submitted a Comment to Solution 110965

no it doesn't! it does something like:
n = sqrt(sum(x.^2,2));
x = x ./ n(:, ones(1, size(x,2)));

No, gaming the test suite is out! Although Steve could yet make a mess of all this by using a polygon with floating point vertices ...

If there's any way this one could be deleted I'd like it to be, because I think it's cheating (and Sven and I had a good competition going on!)

Yeah, I tried all sorts of ways to do that too! I was trying to figure out a better way to normalise the matrix. I discovered normr, posted my solution, and then realised that it was actually a toolbox function. I'd be happy to have that entry removed :| If you replace the normalisation line with normr(diff(P)) you can get the 36

Aargh ... sorry, used a function from the neural network toolbox without realising it. Didn't know it existed (normr)
