Hello(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am generating a matrix which is coming up with this warning.

I know the matrix elements are correct though, as I put them in. But when I work with the matrix, the results don't make sense. I presume this warning is the reason.

Can anyone help? I don't understand why MATLAB can't just store the data I put in it properly. It is in the range 10^1 - 10^12. Is it just working to a single power and losing all the data which does not appear in the decimal representation? (rather than storing the exponent).

I don't understand how it works or how to work around this.

Thanks,

Mike
