Matlab - number format

  1. Sep 26, 2008 #1
    Hi All

    Matlab is displaying numbers with 4 decimal places and i hate when it does that for whole numbers. for example i have a matrix C(i) that starts off from 1 down to 150/275. When i multiply it by 275 i get the first entry as 275.0000 and the last as 150.0000 how do i turn that off or instruct it not to do so.
