The way to encode a negative answer is to use a boolean variable equal to 0. Boolean means equal to 0 or 1 A test is a question to which the answer is yes or no. The result is encoded by matlab as a boolean variable. For example if the test is “Is the age of the E7 instructor less than 100 years” The answer should be: 1 Tests Assignment (the variable a is assigned to 11) Tests Assignment (the variable a is assigned to 11) Test. different from an assignment: it assesses if the condition is true Examples of tests False True False True Examples of tests

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
