How do I turn these vectors into a 3x3 matrix? I am new at MATLab, so any help would be appreciated!
vec1 = [1,2,4]
vec2 = [5,6,8]
vec3 = 1:2:11

Assuming vec3 is a typo,
result = [vec1;vec2;vec3];
If you need to, you can transpose the result.
If your vec3 is not a typo, then you have too many elements in vec3 to make it part of the 3x3 matrix.

Think about it. vec1 has three elements, vec2 has three elements, and vec3 as written has six elements. How can you fit all of those into a 3x3 matrix? What is the actual wording of the assignment?
