How do i make this code into a function?
(This code creates a graph with randomly plotted ellipses)
rng(675382) %regenerates the same values for randn
N = 20;
for R = 1:N %for loop to repeat 10 times
t = linspace(0,2*pi); % t defined angle??? not sure
xc = randn; %defines one of axis as random
x = xc + randn*cos(t);
yc = randn;
y = yc + randn*sin(t);
plot(x,y)
patch(x,y,rand)
hold on %puts all ellipses on same graph
end
My end goal is to rotate the fucntion with a rotation matrix.

What exactly do you want to rotate? You can't rotate a Matlab function, and your code doesn't seem to describe a mathematical function.

From my understanding you wanted to get x,y matrix after performing the operations from a function
These can be done by adding return type to function
function [X,Y] = generatematrix(N)
X=[];
Y=[];
for R = 1:N %for loop to repeat N times
t = linspace(0,2*pi);
xc = randn;
x = xc + randn*cos(t);
yc = randn;
y = yc + randn*sin(t);
X=[X;x];
Y=[Y;y];
plot(x,y)
patch(x,y,rand)
hold on
end
end
Now you can calculate rotation matrix using X,Y

Why no preallocation? You know how large the resulting matrix will be, so that would improve the efficiency of your code.
