How to get values on Matlab GUI about Probability functions(expected value, PDF, CDF, variance, moments?)

Asked by Runo Insan

Dear Matlab Central

I am working on Matlab for my homework. Can you help me?

  1. Defining a polinominal function depends on x variable.
  2. Xmin and Xmax point should be defined for function to limit the values.
  3. probably density function PDF
  4. cumulative density function CDF
  5. expected value
  6. variance
  7. moments
  8. Building GUI to calculate these.

Would you kindly write codes, please? I am really new on Matlab even in GUI.

Very special thanks to you!

Here's a GUI to get you started MAGIC

This GUI will help the novice user get up to speed very quickly on using GUI-based applications. Everything is laid out in a very simple Step 1, Step 2, Step 3, etc. layout. It is a very good starting point for a ..............

Regarding your "Answer" (which really should have been a comment here rather than a new, additional answer)...

Well then go ahead and code them up just like you'd do in C. MATLAB is fairly similar to C so it shouldn't be too hard.

Thank you for your answer but I have not to use functions. I need to define everything like coding as similar as C/C++. I know "Help" seem ocean contains lots of things to do. But unfortunately I shouldn't do.

Thank you. What else help?
