If it is a string:

c = '0 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 0'; s = sum(c == '1'); % or: s = length(strfind(c, '1');

if it is a numeric vector:

c = [0 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 0]; s = sum(c); % as Jose-Luis has suggested already % or: s = nnz(c);

your_result = find(ismember(your_matrix,[1 2],'rows'))';

idx = find(all(bsxfun(@eq,x,y),2));

where `x` is your matrix and `y` is your test vector (eg `y = x(1,:)`, in your example). For example

x = randi(4,1000,5); y = x(3,:); idx = find(all(bsxfun(@eq,x,y),2))
