Hello I have to generate 5 lines of random numbers and at the end of random numbers I have to add one extra negative number from (-1 to -9) I tried strcat and things like that but I couldn't combine negative and real numbers can You help me please? The code below will create everything what I need but I have to somehow combine them. Result has to be for example. Then I have to send them via serial port to the arduino. I know how to do it but sometimes it showed me error. It works only when i send it as a string. I had it like this i = input('Pu numbers: ', '%s'), fwrite(s,i); and it works but now I have to send those random numbers
if true
1 2 3 4 5 -1
5 8 3 5 9 -2
.
.
.
9 2 4 8 6 -9
end
if true
% for b = 1:9
x = round(rand(1,5)*9);
disp(x)
end
for a = -1:-1:-9
disp (a);
end
end

What about
x = [floor(10*rand(1,5)),floor(-9*rand)];
(Note: writing "round(rand(1,5)*9)" makes 0 and 9 half as probable as each of the other integers in between.)

I have to do it separatly and then add the negative numbers. Also the negative numbers can't be random. It has to be in order from -1 to -9.
1 2 3 4 5 -1
4 7 8 9 3 -2
. -3
. -4
1 4 7 8 9 -5
etc.

Assuming x is your 9x5 random matrix:
out = [x (-1:-1:-9)'];
is this what you want?

I don't know how it supposed to look. I thought that I will make in the firts for loop random numbers from 1 to 9 then in another for loop I'll try add negative numbers in order from -1 to -9 and then I will create another for loop with pause which sends this data into serial port one by another.
1 step
1 2 3 4 5
4 7 8 9 3
.
.
1 4 7 8 9
2 step
1 2 3 4 5 -1
4 7 8 9 3 -2
. -3
. -4
1 4 7 8 9 -5
3 step
for p = 1:9
fwrite(serial object, data x);
pause(5);
end
