Hi,

I m newbee and i have a problem about array element division in loop.Can you help me please? Here my code

Get_N_value = input('Enter N value: ');
Get_alpha_count =(2*Get_N_value)-4;
Get_beta_count =(Get_N_value-1);
b_count =(Get_N_value-2);
s_count =b_count;

for gac=1:Get_alpha_count
sprintf('Enter alpha  %d th value:', gac)
alpha_value(1,gac) = input('',gac);

try alpha_value(1,gac) = input('')
what your are getting is chars not doubles.

end

for gbc=1:Get_beta_count
sprintf('Enter beta %d th value:', gbc)
beta_value(1,gbc) = input('',gbc);
end

for i_index=1:b_count
m=(beta_value(i_index)-beta_value(i_index+1))/beta_value(i_index)
end

and result:
Enter N value: 5
ans = Enter alpha  1 th value:
2
ans = Enter alpha  2 th value:
0
ans = Enter alpha  3 th value:
2
ans = Enter alpha  4 th value:
2
ans = Enter alpha  5 th value:
1
ans = Enter alpha  6 th value:
3
ans = Enter beta 1 th value:
2
ans = Enter beta 2 th value:
2
ans = Enter beta 3 th value:
4
ans = Enter beta 4 th value:
4
m = 0
m = -0.040000 <---- this is actually -2/2 = -1 but octave find -0.04000
m = 0
