Numeric matrix to string matrix

2 vues (au cours des 30 derniers jours)
Hi,
Newbie here, need some assistance in solving this problem.
Input is a numeric matrix x (any dimension). Return value is a string matrix.
The rules are :
If the x <= 30, then return “small”, if 30 < x <= 50, then return “medium”, otherwise return “high”
When I run the first "If" statement by itself I get x = "low" "low" "low" "low"
Then when I add the elseif statement I get nothing. Matlab simply ouputs the same results.
It seems like the code is only looking at the first row of my matrix. It also seems that it's considering 45 as less than 30.
I appreciate all the help in advance. I'm new learner, slowly learning programming.
First if statement only.
A = [1 2 45 4 ; 5 6 45 8];
for i = 1:length(A);
if A(i) <= 30
x(i)= "low"
end
end
>>
x =
1×4 string array
"low" "low" "low" "low"
elseif statement
A = [1 2 45 4 ; 5 6 45 8];
for i = 1:length(A);
if A(i) <= 30
x(i)= "low"
elseif 30 > A(i) & A(i)<= 50
x(i) = "medium"
end
end
>>
x =
1×4 string array
"low" "low" "low" "low"

x = [5 15 25;
35 45 55;
65 75 85];
result = strings(size(x));
result(x<=30) = "small";
result(x>30 & x<=50) = "medium";
result(x>50) = "large";
The result is
result =
3×3 string array
"small" "small" "small"
"medium" "medium" "large"
"large" "large" "large"

The easiest way, by far, to do this in matlab is:
A = [1 2 45 4 ; 5 6 45 8]; %demo data
result = discretize(A, [-Inf, 30, 50, Inf], ["low", "medium", "high"])

Allo Guillaume,
I completely got sidetracked and excited about trying both solutions and I forgot to say thanks.
It all worked fine with your solution as well.
Thank you!!
