dear all: my wife runs a daycare and i would like to write a simple function for her to use. i want to input the following variables:
1. name of child 2. age of child (in months) 3. time of day when the child is dropped off 4. time of day when the child is picked up 5. hourly rate charged
i want the function to output the following: 1. weekly charge for each child 2. time slots on each day of the week when she can take on additional kids (there is a legal limit on age and number of kids) 3. graph/plot of her weekly schedule
can someone tell him which matlab functions can be handy for such a project? i'm pretty sure i'll need to use cell arrays, and have checked out the time functions but am not clear about which of those would be useful. any help will be appreciated.
