I'm confused what you're asking for...

what do you want the output to look like?

Well when it's displayed.. it looks like this:

Solution to workshop 5, exercise 3
Calculate the volume of a piece of iron by determining the amount of
water displaced as it is submerged.

I want it to look like this:

Solution to workshop 5, exercise 3

Calculate the volume of a piece of iron by determining the amount of

water displaced as it is submerged.

---with space(s) inbetween the lines. I can't figure out how to do this

Try this:

Code (Text):

for a=1
disp('a')
disp(' ')
disp(' ')
disp('b')
end

It should output
Code (Text):

a

b
