Have equation, need to loop through all data and variables.

1 view (last 30 days)
I have an equation of answer# = (a+b)*c where a, b, and c, are each a column in a different data structure. How would I go about looping through this 100 times and saving/naming the answer something different for plotting?

Why do you think you need a loop? Maybe it is time to learn to use MATLAB?
d = (a+b).*c);

I am trying to learn right now, thanks for the advice though. I am not sure how to construct a loop that brings data into the equation from various data sets that do not match.

As John mentioned in the comments you can use element wise multiplication for above equation format. The data structure in which the data is stored can either be in struct format or in vector format (If it's in any other format you can access the individual value appropriately). Finally, you may bring down each variable a,b,c in vector format and can apply what John has suggested.
If the data is stored in different file format you can use this link to figure out how to import the data.
