How to filter data in a variable based on its value

79 views (last 30 days)
Hello,
I have one 100 by 3 array which contains random values from 0 to 1000
I wanted to filter the data in a new array so that only values above 500 are shown.
To do this I did
A = randi([0 1000],100,3) %Generates random numbers from 0 to 1000 in a 100by3 array
A(A>500) %This is the area I need help
In the code above, A(A>500) only shows me values from the first column of A which are greater than 500.
How can I extend this so that A(A>500) will generate a x by 3 array?

This will set the elements that are less than or equal to 500 to 0:
A = A.*(A>500);
It preserves the structure of ‘A’.

Thank you so much!
I spent way too long on this, I was attempting to do it on cellfun as well but wasn't able to get that working.
A = cellfun(@(x) A>500,A,'UniformOutput',0);
Just out of cursiosity would you happen to know the cellfun equivalent? (Assuming A is a cell of course)

Try this:
A = randi([0 1000],100,3); %Generates random numbers from 0 to 1000 in a 100by3 array
% A(A>500) %This is the area I need help
Ac = mat2cell(A, ones(1,size(A,1)), ones(size(A,2),1)); % Create Cell Array
ix = cell2mat(cellfun(@(x)x>500,Ac, 'Uni',0)); % Logical Index Matrix
Ac(~ix) = {[]}; % Output
My intent was to have the elements that did not meet the criterion be empty [] elements. They are 0 instead. That may reflect a difference in how cell arrays are handled in R2020a.
