In later recitations, youll automate this process.) factor(15) ans = [3 5] factor(16) ans = [2 2 2 2] factor(17) ans = [17] factor(18) ans = [2 3 3] factor(19) ans = [19] factor(20) ans = [2 2 5] % If you interpret the question as least number of unique prime factors, 17 and 19. % Otherwise, 16, 17, 18 3) Define a variable x with a numerical value. Write a program to multiply the variable by the numbers 1 through 5. Then comment out the instructions that include multiplying by even numbers. x = 142; x = x*1; % x = x*2; x = x*3; % x = x*4; x = x*5; % Note that this wasnt a great question. 4) (on PSet) 5) Use Matlab to verify the following. Let x = 3/17 * x = 3/17*pi tan(2*x) (2*tan(x))/(1-(tan(x))^2) ans = -4.4409e-016 % Note that this answer is 10^-16, which is approximately 0 but with some rounding error. 6) Create a vector of the even numbers between 3 and 16. First, write this as a row vector....
