The MATLAB language is interpreted, not compiled. You can execute MATLAB code at the prompt ( >> ) in the Command Window, or you can save sequences of commands in a text file by using the MATLAB Editor. Current active variables are visible in the MATLAB Workspace. 1. Basic MATLAB syntax % This is a comment in MATLAB % Note that ans is a temporary variable that records the output of % the last statement executed >> 1+1 ans = 2 >> 1+1; % output is suppressed when ; is added 2. Using MATLAB as a calculator >> pi ans = 3.1416 >> 2^5 ans = 32 3. Variables Variables in MATLAB can generally be assigned without declaring their type.

    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.
