In Matlab I have been trying to duplicate matrix A [2,4,1;6,7,2;3,5,9] to matrix B using nested for loops. I know the general format uses an algorithm within the loop ie.

` m=3 n=3 b=zeros(m,n) for i=1:m for j=1:n B(m,n)= *algorithm here* end end`

I can not find an algorithm that would work for this matrix and I believe that it was designed this way on purpose. I have tried pulling numbers out of matrix A using

`A=[2,4,1;6,7,2;3,5,9]for c=A(1,:)for d=A(2,:)for e=A(3,:)endendendB=[c;d;e]`

but this just assigns the values for the last column of A to a 1×3 matrix B (B=[1;2;9]

I have also tried scouring the www for help with how to duplicated a matrix that is not algorithmic using nested for loops to no avail.

Any help or guidance would be much appreciated.
