Using if statements correctly

1 view (last 30 days)
I am using an if statement to determine whether entries in matrices are non-zero. If I write the code
if matrixarray(1,1)~=0
% do some operation
elseif
matrixarray(2,1)~=0
% do some other operation
end
I realise that there is the possibility that the first matrix element might be non-zero and the second might also be non-zero. If this happens, will the code just run the first part of the if statement as this is what it sees first or will it run both conditions?

Yes code just pass the next if else condtion.
It runs the one condition only, it executes the first true condition.
More understanding
a=6;
if a>3
disp('hello1');
elseif a>4
disp('hello2');
end
Output:
hello1
