Error using randi Size inputs must be scalar (Matlab)

2 views (last 30 days)
I have entries parameters A and B, and I have to obtain C with for loop, where C is the random subset of B of size Ai
I program this
for i=1:n
But I get the error (Error using randi ==> inputs must be scalar)
How can I fixe the problem

"C is the random subset of B of size Ai" :
for i = 1:n
% Without repetitions:
C = B(randperm(numel(B), A(i)));
% Or with repetitions:
C = B(randi([1, numel(B)], 1, A(i)));
... use C now

@Jan Unfortunately, that's not what I want. Because I must program in a way that C is the random subset of B of size Ai. And in your example you didn't consider the size Ai

@high speed: Sorry, what? Yes, in my example, I've used 4 to clarify what "repetition" means. You have asked for this detail. But the code in my answer does contain A(i).
