x = input('Enter a number between 1 and 100: ');
i = 0;
while x>0
x=x-i;
i=i+1;
end
fprintf('The while loop ran for %d interations\n' ,i)

% my for loop
x = input('Enter a number between 1 and 100: ');
for i = 0:100
x = x - i;
if x <= 0
break;
end
end
fprintf('The while loop ran for %d interations\n', i + 1)
Enter a number between 1 and 100: 30
The while loop ran for 9 interations
Enter a number between 1 and 100: 30
The while loop ran for 9 interations

Don't understand the purpose of the loop.
x = input('Enter a number between 1 and 100: ');
for i=1:x
end
fprintf('The for loop ran for %d interations\n' ,x)
