so I'm trying to detect a circle on a plate but i always got an error at line 18

Please post the entire error message, including the offending line.
Muhammad Hilmi Al Farid Ni'man
so the entire error mesaage is just
Unable to use a value of type cell as an index.
Error in xxxx (line 18)
for k = 1:length(B)

Don't use length as a variable name. If your code does, you will not be able to call the length function.
length = perimeter/4.05
