Hello all,
I have an array which is 150x8192 elements. I want to sum every 4th row of this array, making the new array (150/4)x8192. I am running into issue determining the correct code. I have tried some simple nested for loops, but I always seem to get a new array with the same dimensions (150x8192). Thanks for any suggestions!

If this is your matrix
A=rand(150,8192);
Then this is "every 4th row"
A(1:4:end,:);
I am not 100% sure what you meand about "sum every 4th row" and still you have the same number of columns, but something like
sum(A(1:4:end,:),1)
may be what you need.
