How to use filter() if I don't have the transfer function?

1 view (last 30 days)
I have been provided with an impulse response h (vector of length 3) and an input signal x (vector of length 10).
I need to use the filter() function to perform FIR filtering on the input, but the function requires a transfer function as arguments:
From the documentation:
"y = filter(b,a,x) filters the input data x using a rational transfer function defined by the numerator and denominator coefficients b and a."
How do I get values for a and b so that I can use the function?

hello
you have a FIR filter , and in that case the numerator b is equal to the h impulse response coefficients
the denominator a is equal to 1

I'm talking about this b and a : "y = filter(b,a,x)
and b = [0.2 0.3 0.2
a = 1
