Then, on the next line, increase matlabvariable by 15. *Which of the following variable names are permitted? 7up School-of-Engineering Rutgers for Rutgers_University sin *Create a bunch of variables (some with decimals, some with character arrays i.e. x = ‘hello’ )…. and then use the whos command to verify what variables have been defined. Then, delete a single one of those variables using the clear command. *Run the following two commands: 1) x = 56; 2) y = 87; Now, switch the values of x and y. *Answer the problem above in an m-file and save it as firstrecitation.m on your J drive. Add the J drive to Matlab’s path and run your file by typing “firstrecitation” in the command window.

Recall that a square root is a 1/2 power. *Create a variable r, set equal to 10. Calculate the area and circumference of a circle with radius r. There's a built-in variable "pi" that you might want to use. *For all of the following problems, set x = 15, y = 22, and z = 35. First, predict the results by hand. Then, test your predictions on Matlab: a) x>22 & y>22 b) x>22 | y>22 c) ~0 d) ~z e) x + y > 37 f) x + ( y > 37 ) g) x -y | 0 h) y>x & z>y & z>34 i) x>3 & x<5 j) 3<x<5 k) 14>=x l) 14<=x m) z-y-x>0...
