I don't think this is what Timothy asked for.
If I understand the OP he wants a 4X5 matrix where given:
x = 1:5 y = 10^(0:3)
for ii = 1:length(x) X(:,ii) = x(ii)*y; end
I don't have MATLAB installed on this computer, but the result should be: X= [ 1 1 2 3 1 2 4 8 1 3 9 27 1 4 16 64 1 5 25 125]
which is what I believe the OP asked for. (Maybe its transposed.)
I know there are more MATLAB efficient ways, but Timothy did ask for a SIMPLE way.
