But i am confused how to increment something with only some of the variables increasing while the others stay the same. i.e 0.5 and a is constant and 0:10 is increasing.
% Here's one way (showing all the steps)
x = 0:1:10; x = 0.5*x; x = a + x;
% All together now:
x = a +0.5*(0:10)
% or
x = a + (0:0.5:5)
