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

    what do you want the output to look like?
     
  4. 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
