A) What, specifically, is "not working"? Input, expected output and result obtained...
B) What are the variables? Particularly if they're arrays/vectors rather than simple variables then be aware of the Matlab definition of logical comparisonsa logical operation on a vector/array returns a logical vector/array of the same size and a comparison is T iff all values in that vector/array are T.
C) Remember floating point comparisons for exactly == are fraught w/ the problem of precisionmuch better will be to use a tolerance or recast so the exactly equal "==" test isn't performed explicitly.
D) As a stylistic choice you might consider CASE constructs...
