i have this data in matrix X=[22,33,11,33,33,33,22]
i want to change the data with this form of matrix X=[22,33,22,33,33,33,44]
i have to follow this rules: 1)when find(X==33) next data must change into 22 2)when there have data "33" three times in row,the next data must change to 44
this is my example code for the looping: [a b]=find(X==33)
if X(a,b+1)-X(a,b)==1 if X(a,b+2)-X(a,b+1)==1 X(a,b+3)=44 end end
if X(a,b+1)-X(a,b)==2 X(a,b+2)=22 end
i know im doing this all wrong,can someone give a correct algorithm to get the answer that satisfied the rules.

4. if there have four 33's element in row,the 4th element change to 44
5. if the last three elements are 33 in row,we must add an element to 44

You did not completely clarify, but here is a non-vectorized code that will do part of the job. Note that for this problem, it might be quicker to use a loop anyway.
cnt = 1;
Y = X==33;
while cnt <= length(X)-2
if Y(cnt)
if Y(cnt+1:cnt+2) % Three in a row.
X(cnt+3) = 44;
cnt = cnt + 4;
elseif Y(cnt+1) % Two in a row.
X(cnt+2) = 11;
cnt = cnt + 3;
else % Just one 33.
X(cnt+1) = 22;
cnt = cnt + 2;
cnt = cnt + 1;

I said, "Put everything in a FOR loop over the rows of X." It looks like you just put one clause of the IF statement in a FOR loop. Everything means EVERYTHING (except or course your X variable creation.)
for ii = 1:size(X,1)
cnt = 1;
Y = X(ii,:)==33;
