# numel

Number of data elements in `fi` array

## Syntax

``n = numel(A)``

## Description

example

````n = numel(A)` returns the number of elements, `n`, in `fi` array `A`.Using `numel` in your MATLAB® code returns the same result for built-in types and `fi` objects. Use `numel` to write data-type independent MATLAB code for array handling.```

## Examples

collapse all

Create a 2-by-3- array of `fi` objects.

`X = fi(ones(2,3),1,24,12)`
```X = 1 1 1 1 1 1 DataTypeMode: Fixed-point: binary point scaling Signedness: Signed WordLength: 24 FractionLength: 12 ```

`numel` counts 6 elements in the matrix.

`n = numel(X)`
```n = 6 ```

Create a 2-by-3-by-4 array of `fi` objects.

`X = fi(ones(2,3,4),1,24,12)`
```X = (:,:,1) = 1 1 1 1 1 1 (:,:,2) = 1 1 1 1 1 1 (:,:,3) = 1 1 1 1 1 1 (:,:,4) = 1 1 1 1 1 1 DataTypeMode: Fixed-point: binary point scaling Signedness: Signed WordLength: 24 FractionLength: 12 ```

`numel` counts 24 elements in the matrix.

`n = numel(X)`
```n = 24 ```

## Input Arguments
