# MATLAB: [Questions] Logical Indexing Problem

logical indexing

â€śWrite a function called trim10 that takes two vectors of the same length as input arguments (it does not have to check the format of the input) and returns two row vectors of the same length as the input vectors. If it is called like this, [v_trimmed,trimmings] = trim10(v1,v2), then v_trimmed is identical to v1 except that every element v1(ii) that is greater than v2(ii)+10 must be trimmed, which means that it must be replaced by v2(ii)+10. Each element of trimmings is equal to the amount by which each element has been trimmed. The function must use logical indexing instead of explicit looping. Here is an example of the function being used:
>>
v1v1 =   36    26     4    17  -100    90>> v2v2 =      34    15   -20     0     6    80>> [v_trimmed,trimming] = trim10(v1,v2)v_trimmed =      36    25   -10    10  -100    90trimmings =       0     1    14     7     0     0
Here's my code
function [v_trimmed,trimmings] = trim10(v1,v2)% Return v_trimmedv_trimmed = v1;v_trimmed(v_trimmed>(v2+10)) = v2(v_trimmed>(v2+10))+10;% Return trimmingstrimmings = zeros(1,length(v1));for ii = 1:length(trimmings)      if v_trimmed(ii) == v1(ii)          trimmings(ii) = 0;      else          trimmings(ii) = v1(ii)-(v2(ii)+10);     endendend
I can't use logical indexing to find trimmings because it would return a 1×3 vector, without the 0s like the problem wants. Does any one have any suggestion on how to use logical indexing to find trimmings, or we can't use logical indexing in this case?
Thanks!

function [v_trimmed,trimming] = trim10(v1,v2)v_trimmed = v1;idx = v1>(v2+10);v_trimmed(idx) = v2(idx)+10;trimming = v1 - v_trimmed;end
>> v1 = [36,26,4,17,-100,90]v1 =    36    26     4    17  -100    90>> v2 = [34,15,-20,0,6,80]v2 =    34    15   -20     0     6    80>> [v_trimmed,trimming] = trim10(v1,v2)v_trimmed =    36    25   -10    10  -100    90trimming =     0     1    14     7     0     0
