A=[2 2 2 2 ] B=[3 3 3 3 ] want to check if A-B=k(ones) where k is an integer.

K is non zero integer

Check that the first entry of A-B is an integer with mod() or by comparing it to fix() of itself. Then check that diff() of A-B is all zero.

t = A - B;
if t(1) ~= 0 && t(1) == fix(t(1)) && all(diff(t) == 0)
passed
else
failed
end

Is this what you're looking for?:
isInt = ~logical(mod(A-B,1))
isInt =
1×4 logical array
0 1 1 1
The logical(X) function returns everything that is not 0 as TRUE.

if A= [2 6], B=[6 2] then A-B=[-4 4] so A-B is not an integer multiple of ones as if we take 4 common we get 4*[-1 1]. how can I check it for arbitrary A and B. so if it is multiple of ones then I need 0 or 1 single answer
