With the correction you made, here is my modified code:

% An example:
x = [12,17,21,0,0,0,31,0,0];
e = exp(1); % <-- I assume this is what 'e' is

% The code:
a = 0; b = 1; f = 0;
for k = 1:length(x)
if x(k) ~= 0
a = x(k) + a*f*e^(-1);
b = 1 + b*f*e^(-1);
f = 1;
x(k) = a/b;
f = 0;

% The results:

x(6)] =


x(9)] =


> Thank you for your answer but if I use this the index of the exponent never changes.I want it to decrease as k increases, and i don't know hot to calculate a sum like this.

In the earlier thread where you said, "but if I use this the index of the exponent never changes", I don't know what you meant, but that code was doing just what you had asked for at that time.
