% %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% % Problem 4-A.17: % % A syntax error is typically much easier to detect than a runtime % error. Syntax errors are trapped by MATLAB because a syntax % error is caused by a misuse in some way of the language of % MATLAB. A runtime (or logic) error on the other hand involves no % misuse of the MATLAB language, but rather a flaw in the logic of % the code. % %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% % Problem 4-A.18: % % Part A: forgot multiplication sign after 5… % y = 5*(8-5)^2/7 % % Part B: multiple errors: (1) sine and cosine take round % parenthesis, not square brackets, (2) forgot % multiplication sign in both sine and cosine terms… % tan45 = sin(45*(pi/180))/cos(45*(pi/180)); % % Part C: raising a sine factor is accomplished by putting the % <caret> *after* the entire sine term … % sinSquare45 = sin(45*pi/180)^2 % % Pard D: the left hand side of a assignment statement can % include a variable name or variable names only. No % operators or functions are allowed on the left hand % side. It is difficult to “guess” at what the author of % the code line in Part D meant. When faced with this %

• 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.
