functions not working for a matrix created in for loop.

2 views (last 30 days)
n = input('Enter number of rows: ');
m = input('Enter number of columns: ');
disp('Enter the values of the matrix: ');
sum = 0;
for i = 1:n
for j = 1:m
Mat(i,j) = input(' ');
sum = sum + Mat(i,j);
end
end
for i = 1:n
for j = 1:m
Matrix = zeros(i,j);
end
end
for i = 1:n
for j = 1:m
Matrix(i,j) = Mat(i,j);
end
end
max = max(max(Matrix))
as you can see here when i run the code, it give me an erorr for the [ max(max(Matrix)) ] function that goes 'Index exceeds the number of array elements (1).'
Thanks in advance!

What's the point of 2nd and 3rd For loops? Both are redundant.
Also, It's best not to use inbuilt function names as variable names - max in this case. Use maximum or something else.

It gives that error the second time you run the code; the very first time it works nice. The problem is that in the last line:
max = max(max(Matrix))
you define a variable max, which "shadows" the homonimous function (= after that, you cannot use the function max anymore, until a variable with the same name exists).
The solution is to rename that variable, for instance:
max_ = max(max(Matrix))
