If i have a vector prize = [3;5;1;2;1] and the year =[2007;2018;2011;2011;2018] How do I find the number of times each year appears in 'year'? Without using accumarray function

I don't see what prize has to do with your question. The number of times each of something appears in a set is called the histogram, which you can obtain easily with histcounts or the deprecated histc.
If you are banned from using any of these functions because this is homework, then you'll have to use a for loop. It's really not complicated to figure out what needs to go in the loop.
