If y is an array that's tracking values of a 3-element vector as you iterate on k, then you need to make y a matrix. If I've understood this right, you want to do something like:
x=zeros(n+1,1);
%y=zeros(n+1,1); % the way you did it
y=zeros(3,n+1); % the correct way: now y(:,k) corresponds to the k-th 3-element vector
x(1)=x0;
%y(1)=y0; % the way you did it
y(:,1)=y0; % the correct way
for k=1:n
x(k+1)=x(k)+h;
%y(k+1)=y(k)+h*(x(k)*y(k)); % the way you did it
y(:,k+1)=y(:,k)+h*(x(k)*y(:,k)); % the correct way
disp(y);
end
