Hello, I have problems with a vector that I am working with, it has more than 10,000 elements, but I just need to know the trend of these, so I would like to take 1 out of every 10 values ​​to graph it, could you suggest a way to obtain it please?

To take 1 out of every 10 values from a vector in MATLAB, you can use indexing.
Here is how you can do it:
% Example original vector
original_vector = 1:10000; % Replace this with your actual vector
% Take 1 out of every 10 values
sampled_vector = original_vector(1:10:end);
% Now you can plot the sampled vector to see the trend
plot(sampled_vector);
title('Sampled Vector Trend');
xlabel('Index');
ylabel('Value');
Hope this helps!
