Hello, I have a set of data that I would like to analyse. The data is split into two columns in a matrix. Here is a cutout:

Now I want to group the left data into 10 classes like 10,20,30,40 etc... and calculate the mean values of the right data for each group. In a next step I want to plot the data with a bar for each group. I have sort the matrix according to the left column with sortrows. How can i go on?

Use splitapply() for the groupwise mean and bar() to generate the bar plot.

xTick=round(groupPosMeans);
set(gca, 'XTick', xTick);
