What error message are you encountering when you run the code?
function saida = hatacost231(distance, frequency, ht, hr, zone)
but then
distance=1;
ht=100;
hr=10;
Zone=2;
frequency=1900;
Why do you allow variables to be passed into the function if you are just going to overwrite the values?

Are you trying to just paste that code into the command line, and running it?
Instead, you should save that function code into a file named hatacost231.m. Then call that function from the command window, for example.

give me this error
Attempt to execute SCRIPT hatacost231 as a function:

OK, just in case I wasn't clear, let's test a very simple example. Make a file named hatatest.m, with the following contents:
% =============================
function out = hatatest(in1,in2)
out = in1 + in2;
end
% =============================
and the way you should call it from the command window would be
>> output = hatatest(5,6)
output =
11

Does your function m-file have ANYTHING in front of the "function" line? It can have only comments. If you want to run it and define the function in the same file, that's okay after a certain MATLAB version but the functions must end with an "end" statement, which yours does not.
Try this (all in one m-file called whatever you want.) I've also attach an m-file.
clc; % Clear the command window.
close all; % Close all figures (except those of imtool.)
clear; % Erase all existing variables. Or clearvars if you want.
workspace; % Make sure the workspace panel is showing.
format long g;
format compact;
% Define parameter values to pass in.
distance=1;
ht=100;
hr=10;
zone=2;
frequency=1900;
% Call the function.
saida = hatacost231(distance, frequency, ht, hr, zone)
% end of script portion of the m-file.
