I need to write a code that exclude the 2 smallest elements
clear all;clc
A=[8 1 -2 9 5 11 6]; %Should print A=[8 9 5 11 6]
B=[];
C=[];
for i=1:length(A)
if A(i)==min(A)
else
B=[B A(i)];
if A(i)==min(A)
else
C=[C A(i)];
end
end
end
C
This is a homework question and I am not looking for someone to do the work for me. I just need to know what I'm doing wrong.
So I just came up with this and I'm testing multiple numbers. Does it make sense and is there a way to simplify it?
clear all;clc
A=[8 1 -2 9 5 6];
B=[];
C=[];
for i=1:length(A)
if A(i)==min(A)
else
B=[B A(i)];
end
end
for i=1:length(B)
if B(i)==min(B)
else
C=[C B(i)];
end
end
C
So far it seems to work but I would appreciate any constructive input.

The 'min' function and for loop will help:
A=[8 1 -2 9 5 11 6];
n=2; % Exclude 2 smallest elements
for i=1:n
[num,id]=min(A);
A(id)='';
end
disp(A)
