All values output by your scripts must be appropriately identified (e.g. "The value of ... is . .."). Just omitting the semi-colon from the command that calculates the value is not acceptable. If a "script" requires functions that cannot be implemented as anonymous functions you must use a "void" (i.e. no inputs, no outputs) function m-file with secondary functions. A brief reminder of how to do this can be found on the G:drive (scripts.pdf). 1/. (6 marks) Analysis of an engineering problem has produced the system of equations shown below.

(4 marks) The crane illustrated below consists of a three element truss mounted on a base. What are the tensions in each of the three truss members, the tension T in the guy wire, and the horizontal and vertical reactions ( H and V ) at the support point? Use the numbers shown (1, 2, 3) to identify the truss members....
