LECTURE 1 HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT
1) >>vec= linspace (-pi, pi, 20);
The linspace function creates a linearly spaced vector; linspace(x,y,n) creates
a vector with n values in the inclusive range of x to y.

2) >>linspace (2,3,6);
A vector (2:0.2:3) will consist of a range of numbers from 2 to 3 with a 0.2
interval between each consecutive number. This will result in 6 numbers.

3) a) >>-5: -1 linspace (-5, -1,5)

b) >>5:2:9 linspace (5,9,3)
c) >>8: -2:4 linspace (8,4,3)

4) >>vec= randi(1,10);
>>vec (1:2: end)
>>vec =randi(1,10);
>>vec (1:2: end);
The expression above will index the odd or even indices for any length of
vector.

5) Size. This is because it tells you both the rows & columns.

6) If you want to know the number of elements, you would use length. If you
want to figure out whether it is a row or column vector, you would use size.

7) >>mat= [1:4; 7:10];

a) >>mat (end, end);
b) >>mat(end);
c) >> [r, c] =size(mat);
>>mat (r, c):

8) >>vec = 1:3:16;
a)>>vec(end);
b)>>vec(numel(vec));
c)>>vec(length(vec));
d)>>v=fliplr(vec);
>>v (1);

9) >>mat=rand (3,5);
>>mat (3, :)= []
The expression mat = rand(3,5) creates a random 3 by 5 matrix mat and
mat(3,:) deletes the 3rd row.

10) mat (2:3, 1:3) = ones (2).

Because the left and right sides are not the same dimensions. The expression on
the left is a 2 by 3 matrix but the expression on the right is a 2 by 2 matrix.

11) >>mat3d= zeros (2,4,3);

>>mat3d(:,:, 2)=1;
>>mat3d(:,:, 3)=5;
mat3d= zeros (2,4,3) creates a 2 x 4 x 3 zero matrix. mat3d(:, :, 2) = 1 changes
the second layer into a 2 x 4 matrix consisting of only ones. Likewise mat3d(:,:,
3) = 5 changes the third layer into a 2 x 4 matrix consisting of only fives.

12) >>num = 3:2:9;

>>denom = 1:4;
>>fracs = num ./ denom;
>>sum(fracs)
The vector num (represents numerator) is a vector from 3 to 9 with an interval of
2 and denom (represents denominator) is vector from 1 to 4. The vector fracs is a
vector consisting of the division between num and denom. The results are then
summed up with sum(fracs).
13) >>mat = randi ([-10 10], 3,5);
a) maximum value in each column
>>max(mat)
b) maximum value in each row
>>max(mat)
c) maximum value for the entire matrix
>>max(max(mat))
d) cumulative maxima
>>cummax(mat)

14)>>ones (3,5) *100;

>>zeros (3,5) +100;

15) >>hours= v (1:2: length(v));

>>payrate = v (2:2: length(v));
>>totalpay = hours*payrate;

16) >>all(r>0 & h>0)

Ans = 1
>>vol = pi.*r.^2.*h

17)>>rainmat = [25 33 29 42; 53 44 40 56];

>>highest = max(max(rainmat));
>> = find(rainmat==highest);

18)>> nums = randi ([50 100], 1, 20);

>>evens = nums(rem(nums,2) == 0); OR >>evens = nums(mod(nums,2) == 0);
>>odds = nums(rem(nums,2) ~= 0); OR >>evens = nums(mod(nums,2) ~= 0);
The vector evens will divide each number in the vector array nums by 2 and
compute the numbers in the array that return a remainder of zero. Likewise, the
vector odds will divide each number in the vector array nums by 2 and
compute the numbers in the array that have remainders not equal to zero.

19) >>vec = [7 5 9 4 -8 -4];

>>v1 = vec (2: end);
>>v2 = vec (1: end-1);
>>v1-v2;

20) >>vec = 1:9;

>>fhalf = vec (1: fix(length(vec). /2);
>>shalf = vec(fix(length(vec). /2) +1: end);
