I have the following codes
delta=[-2*pi:0.063:2*pi];
y=sin(delta);
subplot(3,2,1)
plot(y)
y=cos(delta);
subplot(3,2,2)
plot(y)
title(sin(delta))
My question is how do i put the title for each graph and labels? i tried to to do title(sin(delta)) but it doesn't show

Put the title commands after the plot and before the next subplot. Specify the title as a character vector or string scalar.
delta=[-2*pi:0.063:2*pi];
y=sin(delta);
subplot(3,2,1)
plot(y)
title('sin(delta)')
y=cos(delta);
subplot(3,2,2)
plot(y)
title('cos(delta)')

For subplots I often prefer to use ntitle rather than title. The difference is ntitle keeps the text closer to the data, whereas title places the text high above the axes, where it may appear to be an xlabel for to the plot above.

title('sin(delta)')

Great Azzi
You are always providing short,simple and effective solution

Or this, which is shorter, simpler, and just as effective :-)
title sin(delta)
