Hi I am trying to print a table (by just using fprintf or disp); please comment below if you know how to make each line align with its corresponding header as possible. If you know how to move the number in first start at the second line that could be better. Thank you in advance =)
here is my code

This should be close to what you want. However, I have used the logical not, and, and or functions which appear to be diffferent that your definitions of functionNot, functionAnd, and functionOr. You can replace these with calls to your functions.
%start with a clear workspace and command window
clearvars; clc;
%Create two array (x,y)
x=[1 1 1 0 0 0 2 2 2];
y=[1 0 2 1 0 2 1 0 2];
%print the header
fprintf(' x y tNot(x) tAnd(x,y) tOr(x,y)\n');
% print the results
for r=1:9
fprintf('%5d%5d%10d%10d%10d\n', x(r), y(r), not(x(r)), and(x(r), y(r)), or(x(r), y(r)));
end
Result:
x y tNot(x) tAnd(x,y) tOr(x,y)
1 1 0 1 1
1 0 0 0 1
1 2 0 1 1
0 1 1 0 1
0 0 1 0 0
0 2 1 0 1
2 1 0 1 1
2 0 0 0 1
2 2 0 1 1

Sure, %5d means format a decimal value with a minimum field width of 5 characters (padded on the left with spaces), similarly, %10d means format a decimal value with a minimum width of 10 characters. That is how you can get a predictable width for the columns. Also, the \n means 'start a new line of output here'.
If this solves your problem, please don't forget to accept the answer. If not, add another comment explaining what isn't working like you need it to.
