Hello.
I need to create a loop that can do the following:
I have to create a distance matrix for plotting my graph. The total distance is 95 m with 5 m spaces. So it needs to start at 5 and end at 95. Start from 5 again till 90 and start from 5 till 85. 5 till 80 and so on.
It should look like this:
5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60 65 70 75 80 85 90 95 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60 65 70 75 80 85 90 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60 65 70 75 80 85 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60 65 70 75 80 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60 65 70 75 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60 65 70 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60 65 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 555 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 5 10 15 20 25 30 355 10 15 20 25 30 5 10 15 20 25 5 10 15 20 5 10 15 5 10 5

No need for a loop:
result = nonzeros(flipud(tril(repmat((95:-5:5)', 1, 95/5))))'
Of course, if this is homework and you do need to use a loop, then we won't give you the solution but can tell you where you're going wrong if you show what you've done.

Hello, thank you so much it worked. It's not homework, I am working on my research project and my supervisor mentioned that I can write a loop for it that's why I thought I needed a loop. Thank you :)

Hi
You can just use simple for loops to do this.
data = []
for i=95:-5:5
data = [data 5:5:i]
end
end

v = nonzeros((5:5:95).' .* fliplr(triu(ones(19)))).'
