Matrix Calculation in MATLAB
35 views (last 30 days)
Could someone help me solve this problem in Matlab.. Suppose I have this Matriks
2 3-x ]
So, it can be written as : (to alculate the determinant)
(2-x * 3-x)-(5*2)=0
But In matlab if I cannot put x before I define it..
There will be an error :
Undefined function or variable 'x'.
Please help me!! How to be able multiply (2-x * 3-x) ?????
I'm not allowed to use det function from Matlab!!!

Define x as symbolic variable. Also (2-x * 3-x) should be ((2-x) * (3-x)) else you are calculating (2- (x * 3) -x). So:
((2-x) * (3-x))-(5*2)
If you want to calculate the values for which the determinant is 0:
x0=solve(((2-x) * (3-x))-(5*2)==0)
