Matlab: How to find answers repeatedly by inserting values?
I have a programming doubt. The doubt is simple.
"syms a b c;
a=b+c;
b=3; c=1;"
The above is the program. Now when I do b+c, I get answer as 4. But when I want to find the value of a,
the system says a=b+c.
It should say a=4. But it does not.
Another doubt is that, if I keep on changing values of b and c, can I get different values of a?
@#LinkSnipped# can you help me?

Well I am not pro in MATLAB but I see you have assigned b=3 and c=1 after a=b+c; that may be the reason you are not getting proper value.
Try this
"syms a b c;
I think this should work for you.
b=3; c=1;
a=b+c;" 
ISHAN TOPREThanks brother. It worked!
but the problem is only partially solved. Say I have an equation,
Y=3X+2;
Now I want values of Y for X=1,2,3...
Then what to do? Each time I do not want to type the equation. Nor do I want to plot X,Y ðŸ˜” 
Ramani AswathProf.Rudra Pratap's book 'Getting Started With Matlab: A quick introduction for scientists and engineers' published by Oxford University Press is very good for this. Written in a casual style it gets you going fast. I have the book for Matlab v.6. I can vouch for its excellence. (Available from college book stores at a concession. I bought it at IISC, Bangalore)

@#LinkSnipped#, is this OK?)

Well you can use some kind of array for that. Let me make one example for you.IssueThanks brother. It worked!

@#LinkSnipped# Have a look at this : #LinkSnipped#
You want something like this right?

@#LinkSnipped# Yes I want same type of output. 
Jeffrey ArulrajUsing arrays is really simple try using
a=b.+c
a=b.*c
All these simple modifications allow you to perform any operation in which the inputs are sequences
Remember the fact that '.' (full stop) allows you to perform manipulations of arrays of input
But balancing inputs are needed i.e Basic rules which govern array computation have to be followed here also
