How to display a single element from a matrix?

33 views (last 30 days)
Hi, I was wondering how I would be able to display a singular element from a given matrix. If I were to have a random integer matrix
x = randi (20,20)
x = 20×20
11 6 2 1 3 12 17 11 4 4 5 15 2 9 4 1 6 18 18 8 5 18 11 17 12 10 7 20 15 5 17 10 10 1 5 4 10 1 15 1 16 13 7 19 20 6 1 20 20 13 11 15 1 8 10 13 1 17 7 3 3 6 9 15 18 4 18 9 3 8 15 9 11 17 8 2 9 10 19 2 4 7 8 6 10 17 5 9 18 16 11 7 8 8 1 18 14 8 5 17 5 10 11 10 16 4 15 13 16 13 8 20 10 3 9 18 1 20 13 5 6 6 8 18 15 7 2 1 8 20 4 4 6 10 19 1 7 20 6 2 15 8 6 7 9 17 20 20 17 2 3 14 13 18 17 8 20 9 2 15 11 1 3 18 1 20 14 9 20 6 13 13 16 10 6 7 4 2 11 15 11 9 5 16 5 6 4 8 9 12 18 5 16 20 18 12 7 19 15 17
how would I go about selecting or highlighting the given value from a random row/column combination (say I want to know what vlaue is at [5, 7])? Thanks in advance for the advice.

x(5,7)
ans = 15

Indexing is a fundamental Matlab method. To learn the basics asking in the forum is less efficient than using the tutorials:
