Hello! Let's say that i have an array 5x5 filled with numbers from 1 to 20
A=randi(20,5);
How can i compute a new array B of the same size as the A with three conditions:
1. If the element of the array A is smaller than 10, B=9^2
2. If the element of the array A is equal to 10, B=0
3. If the element of the array A is higher than 10, B=20^0.5
Thank you,
Alex

Fairly simple
clc;clear;close
A=randi(20,5);
B = A;
% get indices
B1 = find(B == 10);
B2 = find(B > 10);
B3 = find(B < 10);
% change values at those indices
B(B1) = 0;
B(B2) = 20^0.5;
B(B3) = 9^2;

Thank you! You greatly helped me!

You may simply combine them together as follows:
B = (A>10)*(9^2)+(A==10)*0+(A<10)*(20^0.5);
