ECOR 2606 Lab Test #2 v6 Instructions: Submit two "script" files, one for each of the two questions. Call these files Q1.m and Q2.m. 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/. Analysis of an engineering problem has produced the system of equations shown below. Y is a parameter that can be varied.

What are the tensions in each of three truss members, the tension T in the guy line, and the horizontal and vertical reactions (H and V) at the base? The numbers by the truss members (1, 2, 3) identify the members. Use these numbers in outputting your results....
