# Write a function called holiday that takes two input arguments called month and day; both are scalar integers representing a month (1-12) and a day (1-31). You do not need to check that the input is valid. The function returns a logical true if the s

function [v] = holiday(day,month)

a=[1,1];

b=[4,7];

c=[25,12];

d=[31,12];

A= [day,month]

if A == a | A == b | A == c |A == d

v= true

else

v=false

end

here i'm getting an error with input(7,4) . any idea why? the format for the code being(day,month) is adhered to.

Hi,

Your condtion is A = [4,7] --> you tried [7,4]:

function [v] = holiday(day,month)

a=[1,1];

b=[4,7];

c=[25,12];

d=[31,12];

A = [day,month]

if A == a | A == b | A == c |A == d

v= true;

else

v=false;

end

v

check for x = holiday(4,7):

x = holiday(4,7)

v =

logical

1

x =

logical

1

check for y = holiday(7,4):

y = holiday(7,4)

v =

logical

0

y =

logical

0

Best regards

Stephan

Here is my take on the problem. I've tested it, and it works. I don't know why your function doesn't work while it looks like it should.

function [v] = holiday(month,day)

a=[1,1];

b=[7,4];

c=[12,25];

d=[12,31];

A = [month,day];

if A == a

v=true;

elseif A == b

v=true;

elseif A == c

v=true;

elseif A == d

v=true;

else

v=false;

end

%Simplest one - Tested

function value = holiday(month,day)

if month == 1 && day == 1

value = true;

elseif month == 7 && day == 4

value = true;

elseif month == 12 && (day == 25 || day == 31)

value = true;

else

value = false;

end

function H = holiday(month,day);

if (month == 1 && day == 1) || (month == 7 && day ==4) || (month == 12 && day == 25) || (month == 12 && day == 31);

H = true;

else fprintf(' go to work\n '); H = false;

end
