Question #52519
In this part, you will use logical vectors to make multiple decisions in parallel concerning values in two arrays. Firstly, generate two random [1x10] arrays using randi. The numbers should be integers between 0 and 100. Let’s call these two arrays a1 and a2. Your task is to generate a third array, a3, which at each index, contains the largest number out of the two earlier arrays. You must accomplish this using a logical vector and no loops. An example snippet of code that would accomplish the same task, with a for-loop, is given below: % For each index i, the corresponding a3 % value will be the larger of a1(i), a2(i) for i=1:10 a3(i) = max(a1(i),a2(i)); end Hint: try constructing a logical vector of size [1x10] to store logical values based on if a1(i) &gt; a2(i)

Solve
%generate random vector size 10 in range [0;100]
a1 = randi([0 100],10,1);
a2 = randi([0 100],10,1);
%calculate value of maximum of a1 and a2
a3=(a1>a2).*a1+(a1<=a2).*a2
