Adding elements in column vectors

41 views (last 30 days)
I have 2 colimn vectors a = 1:500 and b= 1:6000 I would like to make a new column vector c with (a first) and (b second) so the new column vector would bw c = 1:6500.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thank you

You want to concatenate the vectors a and b. This is one of the most basic operations in MATLAB. All the details are here.

you can concatenate vectors and matrices vertically with a semicolon like this
c = [a; b];
or concatenate them horizontally with a comma like this
c = [a, b];

Yes indeed, but horizontal concatenation won't work in this case because a is 1x500 and b is1x6000 and both are column vectors.

MAke a and b of equal dimension using linspace. and then add.
Read about linspace.,
