I just couldn't figure out how to convert it into a while loop. here is the code:

clc;

clear;

clear all;

n=input('Enter the number of elements in your array:'); % number of array elements

for i=1:n

values(i)=input('Enter the values:')

if values(i)<0

values(i)=values(i)*(-1)

end

end

for k=1:(n-1)

d=k+1

Xaverage(k)=(values(d)+values(k))/2

end

y=1:1:n;

plot(values,y)

hold on

z=1:1:(n-1);

plot(Xaverage,z)

Accepted Answer

This for loop:

for i=1:n

% stuff

end

is equivalent to this while loop:

i = 1;

while i <= n

% stuff

i = i + 1;

end

Your biggest problem is you never increment i or k in your while loops.

This is my current code:

n=input('Enter the number of elements in your array:'); % number of array elements

i=1;

while i<=n

i=i+1;

values(i)=input('Enter the values:')

if values(i)<0

values(i)=values(i)*(-1)

end

end

k=1;

while k<=(n-1)

k=k+1;

d=k+1

Xaverage(k)=(values(d)+values(k))/2

end

y=1:1:n;

plot(values,y)

hold on

z=1:1:(n-1);

plot(Xaverage,z)
