Write a function called mean_squares that returns mm, which is the mean of the squares of the first nn positive integers, where nn is a positive integer and is the only input argument. For example, if nn is 5, your function needs to compute the average of the numbers 1, 4, 9, 16, and 25. You may use any built-in functions including, for example, sum.
function mm = mean_squares (nn)
sqr = (1:nn).^2;
total = sum(sqr);
mm = total/nn;
I wrote the above code. In line 2, I got the following error: "For colon operator with char operands, first and last operands must be char."
However,the code if executed in the command window, runs fine.
