What is the equation? '100(1-0.023)' is just a constant value.

Hmm.. maby f(x)=n(1-×) P(×)=f(×)(1-×) and so on x has a known value now tho

Try this:
initialAmount = 100;
amountLeft = initialAmount;
maxNumberOfYears = 50;
for k = 2 : maxNumberOfYears
amountLeft(k) = amountLeft(k - 1) * (1-0.023);
fprintf('After %d years, the amount left = %.2f\n', amountLeft(k));
plot(amountLeft, 'b.-', 'LineWidth', 2, 'MarkerSize', 20);
grid on;
xlabel('Time (Beginning of Year)', 'FontSize', 20);
ylabel('Amount Left', 'FontSize', 20);
g = gcf;
g.WindowState = 'maximized';
