Hello I am trying to do a diagonal inferior matrix with a diagonal of ones but my diagonal have differentes valors. How do i do a matrix with diagonal of ones? Here is my code:
if true
% code
a=[6,9,7;6,2,0;1,8,3]
a=tril(a)
end

What would be really helpful is if in addition to your example input you could tell us what you want the output to be.

eye(5)
?
more per clarification:
a = tril(magic(3));
a(logical(eye(size(a,1)))) = 1

Hello Thanks for the answers but the firs answer just create a matriz of 5x5 with diagonal of ones and I need my matrix "a" but with diagonal of ones. The second answer has an error say: ??? Undefined function or variable 'n'.
Error in ==> Untitled2 at 3 [ii,jj]=ind2sub(size(a),1:n*m)
What should I do?
Thanks

Well thaks Azzi Abdelmalek but now with your code matlab give me a triangular matrix with ones down of the diagonal and I need my diagonal just of ones. I could divide the last coefficent each row, and so have my diagonal with ones but I dont know manipulate rows and how I do that. Example I want that my triangular matrix: A=[6,9,7;6,2,0;1,8,3] A=tril(A)
A=[6,0,0;6,2,0;1,8,3]---->A=[1,0,0;3,1,0;1/3,8/3,1] This I want to do, having any matrix.

That comes of divide by 3 all the third row to have my last coefficent with 1

n=size(a,1);
a(1:n+1:end)=1;

Your last comment explained how to construct the resulting matrix. You see, how important it is to precisely formulate your question.
Anew = diag(1./diag(A))'*tril(A)

There is even simpler solutionof your problem:
Anew = diag(diag(A))\tril(A)
