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 comparisons--a 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 precision--much 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...
