code problem

I'm trying to solve a simple function iteratively. My code is as follows...
for n = 1:.1:156
newvar(n) = (d2./n).*tanh((2*pi*d2)./n);

The first issue is that Matlab objects to this and gives me the message "Attempted to access newvar(1.1); index must be a positive integer or logical."

Ultimately, what I'm trying to find is the n value that equals the solution to the equation, which is indicated by z. I was planning to do this by using find, once I have run the loop.

What am I doing wrong?
