    Generating a Random Number from an array for a blackjack simulator--Matlab

    I have a homework problem where I have to generate a single hand of blackjack to a player and allow the player to hit or hold. I'm ahving trouble generating the random card.

    My attempt:

    x = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,10,10,10,11]; %the possible random numbers
    CardValue = randi(x,1) %this is the problem, I want to draw a random card from the array



    Thanks for any help!
