Multiply out 10 factors
Posted:
Apr 12, 2010 2:48 PM


I want to do something simple, but I cannot do it right in Matlab and need help:
Multiply out: (xa)(xa^2)(xa^3)...(xa^10)
How can I do this? I tried so many things, including entering the equation. However, Matlab does not give me the resulting polynomial, it gives me a factorization (which is not what I look for).
Thanks in advance for every tip!!
