I am getting the following error while finding out the mean of a row vector(using the mean function of matlab) containing ten elements:

Subscript indices must either be real positive integers or logicals.

Could any one tell me how to resolve this error?

Thank you!

In the Command Window, type:

which mean -all

If it returns:

mean is a variable.

among its path returns, you are ‘shadowing’ (or ‘overshadowing’) the mean function with a variable you named ‘mean’. The solution is to rename the variable to ‘meanx’ or some such.

I still believe you’re shadowing the mean function somewhere in your code.
