% create variable x with array of all necessary values

x=linspace(0.1,13,50);

for i=x

% create equation to determine y

y=(sqrt(2.*i)*4*i.^3)/(4.*i(1)+7.^(i/10));

%create equation to determine z

z=log10(2.*i+5)+(4.*i+exp(i))/(2./3+4.*i.^2);

end

For the code above im trying to use values from my x array to create two arrays, y and z, im pretty new to matlab and im struggling, thanks.

First I would rename the variable i as ii so it’s not confused with the more general use of i = sqrt(-1). To save the variable, you need to index them. You can either have them as one row full of data or one column. Because this looks like homework I don’t want to write it all out for you. But while you’re going through the for loop, you’ll need to save the variable to a new position each time so it doesn’t overwrite. I’ll give you an example.

indx = 1; %starting value for array end

pp = 0:0.2:5;

for xx = pp

y(indx,1)= xx^2; %y variable is saved in a different column position each time through the loop

indx = indx + 1; %increment your value by one to save it to a new spot

end

disp(y) %displays your y variable in the command windiw

plot(pp,y) %plots your pp vs your y
