Using nested loops, write a Matlab program that goes through all elements of a matrix (2D array) and replaces every element that is either a multiple of 5 or 7 with -1.

This is what I have so far...
A=input('enter an array');
num_rows = size(A,1);
num_cols = size(A,2);
for i=1:1:num_rows
for j=1:1:num_cols
if A(i,j)/ 5 or 7 = integer
I'm not sure how to identify the multiples of 5 and 7 and make them replace that with the -1

Your test on a number x from your array can be:
if round(x/5)==x/5 | round(x/7)==x/7
(Doing fprintf('-1') just prints out "-1" and is totally useless for your purposes.)
