If you have a question about an error message, you need to include the full copy-pasted error message.

Thanks for the clarification, I'll make sure to do so next time around...

Hi Lauren,
This error is occurring because of line 6. There should be delimeter instead of "and".
It should be as follows.
Fs = 100;
t = (1:100)/Fs;
s1 = sin(2*pi*t*5); s2=sin(2*pi*t*15); s3=sin(2*pi*t*30);
s = s1+s2+s3;
[b,a] = ellip(4,0.1,40,[10 20]*2/Fs);
[H,w] = freqz(b,a,512) ; plot(w*Fs/(2*pi),abs(H));
sf = filter(b,a,s);
S = fft(s,512);
SF = fft(sf,512);
w = (0:255)/256*(Fs/2);
plot(w,abs([S(1:256)' SF(1:256)']))

is the error you are getting:
"Invalid expression. Check for missing multiplication operator,
missing or unbalanced delimiters, or other syntax error. To
construct matrices, use brackets instead of parentheses." ?
This maybe because of 'and' in your code at line:6
Try the following:
Fs = 100;
t = (1:100)/Fs;
s1 = sin(2*pi*t*5); s2=sin(2*pi*t*15); s3=sin(2*pi*t*30);
s = s1+s2+s3;
[b,a] = ellip(4,0.1,40,[10 20]*2/Fs);
[H,w] = freqz(b,a,512);
plot(w*Fs/(2*pi),abs(H));
sf = filter(b,a,s);
S = fft(s,512);
SF = fft(sf,512);
w = (0:255)/256*(Fs/2);
plot(w,abs([S(1:256)' SF(1:256)']))
