You shouldn't give up so quickly, Petra. The answer you gave was correct - for the positions in 'a'.

Use both returned quantities in the function 'ismember' to determine both the numbers in 'a' which are also in 'b' and their positions. Bear in mind of course that in case there is more than one like number in 'a' which is duplicated in 'b', you will get the position of the one with highest index.
