take a value y of a function y = f(x) giving x.

Suppose we have the following code that creates the graph of the sine function:
x = 0:pi/100:2*pi;
y = sin(x);
plot(x,y)
Now I have the graph of the sine function. how can I get the value of the function by specifying the respective x-value? For example, how can I get the value of sin(51) based on the plot I created (it is not valid to use the matlab sine function)?

Use an appropriate interpolation function, such as interp1 or just index into it, depending on what you want to do —
x = 0:pi/100:2*pi;
y = sin(x);
y51 = y(51);
plot(x,y)
hold on
plot(x(51), y(51), 'ms')
hold off
axis('padded')
.
