Problem Statement: A stick of unit length is randomly split in two pieces. Estimate the average length of the short piece.n= 10000; % number of trials total= 0; % accumulated length of short pieces so far for k= 1:n breakPt= rand; shortPiece= min(breakPt, 1-breakPt); total= total + shortPiece; end aveLength= total/n; fprintf('Estimated average length is %.4f (%d trials)\n', ... aveLength, n)

Problem Statement:Show screen output for the stick experiment in order to illustrate the for loop of the above assignmentclc n= 10; % number of trials total= 0; % accumulated length of short pieces so far for k= 1:n fprintf('Top of loop. k is %d. ', k) breakPt= rand; fprintf(' Split at %.2f. ', breakPt) shortPiece= min(breakPt, 1-breakPt); total= total + shortPiece; fprintf(' Bottom of loop.\n') pause end aveLength= total/n; fprintf('Estimated average length is %.4f (%d trials)\n',... aveLength, n)

Problem Statement :Average 10 numbers from user inputn= 10; % number of data values total= 0; % current sum (initialized to zero) for k= 1:n % read and process input value num= input('Enter a number: '); total= total + num; end ave= total/n; % average of n numbers fprintf('Average is %f\n', ave)
