For an arbitrary matrix, I want to sum the entries of each row of it.
I use the command sum(A,2) for the square matrix A. But I encounter the following error
"Index in position 1 is invalid. Array indices must be positive inteders or logical values"

Somewhere you have a variable named ‘sum’ and this is throwing the error.
The solution is to re-name the variable to something else that makes sense in the context of the code and does not overshadow any MATLAB function names.

Most likely, you have a variable called "sum". Clear it first and then run your code
clear sum;
A=magic(5);
sum(A,2)
ans = 5×1
65 65 65 65 65
