Hi, I want to make a for loop which iterates the the values of my prob function. Ideally I want to the loop to do for [89-105] to give the sequence of pk(89)=prob(89) & pk(90)=prob(90) and so on. I already have the loop working that it gives the values of prob(k) in the correct sequence. However, I am unable to have the loop adding the values of i to be 89,90,91,92 and so. It must be a simple command but I cannot find it. Hope some can help me out.
pd= makedist('normal','mu',100,'sigma',10)
demand = [0:1:200];
prob = normpdf(demand,100,10);
for k=89:1:105;
pk(i)=prob(k)
i=k+1;
end
Furthermore, the error that I get running the code regarding the line pki)=prob(k) is [Subscript indices must either be real positive integers or logicals.]
Thankyou

for k=89:1:105;
pk(k)=prob(k)
end
Yes, you can get it pk(89) to pk(105)
but what about pk(1), pk(2),...might be zero. yes?

Yes @madhan ravi, is the following correct way?
pk=zeros(size(prob));
Thanks

I think we misunderstand each other. What I mean is, that ideally I want to run the program and as an output obtain two 'colums'. first colum [pk(1) pk(2) pk(3) pk(4).......pk(200)]=[0 0 0 ....... 0.0035 0.00034]
easier said. I would like to see the as answer e.g. for the instance of k=100 get as output pk(100)=0.00397 instead of now only getting 0.000397

demand=[0:1:200];
prob=normpdf(demand,100,10);
prob(1:80)=0;
pk=zeros(size(prob));
for k=1:1:105;
pk(k)=prob(k);
fprintf('\n when k=%d, value of p(%d)=%.5f',k,k,pk(k));
