Homework Help: Matlab function help

  1. Feb 24, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Implement a matlab function y=radicals(v) that calculates sqrt v(1) + sqrt v(2) +sqrt v(3) +......sqrt v(n). These values are components of v.
    Then I need to write a script to test function. Enter positive integer k. Generate random vector r of length k using rand function. Then calculate following sequence by calling function radicals repeatedly. sqrt r(1), sqrt r(1)+sqrt r(2), sqrt r(1)+sqrtr(2)+sqrt r(3),......
    , sqrt r(1)+sqrt r(2)+sqrt r(3)....+sqrt r(k)

    Save calculated values to a vector seq. Display and plot seq.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Set up a function y = radicals(v)

    function y=radicals(v)
    n = 1
