Let x =[0:1:10]; polynomial = [ 1 sin(x) x.^3 x]; let v1,v2 and v3 be the three roots of given polynomial in v whose coefficients are functions of x. I want to plot a graph between v1 and x.

So why did you set x=pi/18?
You were asked to solve this problem for x varying from 0 to 10, NOT just at one value of x.
If the polynomial has three roots, what does v1 versus v2 and v3 mean? Roots need not be provided in any specific order. So how are you supposed to choose v1?

You cannot use ROOTS on multiple polynomials at a time. You will have to use a loop over x(i),
for i=1:numel(x)
p =[1 sin(x(i)) x(i).^3 x(i)];
r{i}=roots(p);
%More code...
end
