# MATLAB for Loop Examples

A MATLAB for loop is a repetition control structure that allows you to efficiently write a loop that needs to
execute a specific number of times.

The MATLAB for loop syntax is given as

for index = values
<program statements>
...
end

## MATLAB for loop Examples

1. Write a program to display numbers from 1 to 5.

for p = 1:1:5
disp(p)
end

Result

2. Write a program to display values which are decrementing by 0.8 at each step. The series start at 9 and end at 6.

for p = 9:-0.8:6
disp(p)
end

Result

3. Write a program to display the following pattern.

p=input('enter row number = ')%enter row number to generate pattern upto that row
x = [];
for i = 1 : p
x = strcat(x,'*');
disp(x)
end

Result

4. Write a program to display the following pattern.

p=input('enter row number = ')%enter row number to generate pattern upto that row
x = [];
for i = 1 : p
x = strcat(x,'*');
s = [blanks(p-i) x];
disp(s)
end

Result

5. Write a program to display the following pattern.

n=input('enter row number = ')%enter row number to generate pattern upto that row
for i=n+1:-1:2
for j=i-1:-1:1
fprintf('*');
end
fprintf('\n');
end

Result

6. Write a program to sum all 1, 2, and 3 digit prime numbers

Method-1

total = 0;
for k = 1:999
if(isprime(k))
total = total + k;
end
end
disp(total)

Method-2

total = 0;
for k = primes(999)
total = total + k;
end
disp(total)

Result

76127

7. Write a program to duplicating each element of a vector. For example, given the vector [1 4 3], we want to end up with [1 1 4 4 3 3].

Method-1

V = 1:5; % sample vector
for j = 1:length(V)
V2((2*j-1):(2*j)) = V(j);
end
disp(V2)

Method-2

V = 1:5; % sample vector
for j = 1:(2*length(V))
V2(j) = V(ceil(j/2));
end
disp(V2)

Method-3

V = 1:5; % sample vector
counter = 0.5;
for j = 1:(2*length(V))
V2(j) = V(ceil(counter));
counter = counter + 0.5;
end
disp(V2)

Result

8. Write a program that finds all 4 digit twin primes (numbers separated by two that are both primes)

for x = 1001:2:9997
if(isprime(x) & isprime(x+2))
fprintf('%0f and %0f are both prime\n',x,x+2)
end
end

Result
