A vector is given v=[6, 3, -9, 10, 5, 0, -8, 11, -15]. write a matlab command the doubles the elements that are odd and raises the elements that are even to th power of 2

therefore the answer would be the new vector is 36 6 -18 100 10 0 64 22 -30

See Greig's answer below for structuring your code. You should be able to simplify it by using an if and else (there is no need for a second for loop, and it is unclear what you expect n=odd(v) to do). Within your loop, as you are doing now, check for even and then let your else handle the case where the number is odd.

If you want to avoid a loop and do it vectorized, try this:
evenIndexes = 2 : 2 : length(v);
oddIndexes = 1 : 2 length(v);
v(evenIndexes) = v(evenIndexes)........you finish it..
v(oddIndexes) = v(oddIndexes)........you finish it..
You already did the formulas in your code so it should be easy to put them in the code above.

Yeah, after looking at his code more carefully, it looks like you're right. So the code for that would be
oddIndexes = mod(v, 2)
evenIndexes = ~oddIndexes

Your loop structure above seems a little odd and has some missing "end"s. Try this for a basic loop structure...
for k=1:length(v)
if % something
% do something
% do something else
And check out
doc even
That should be enough to fix up your code
