#### how to sort out certain numbers in array

```Hi,
I've got simple question,
how to get rid of some numbers I don't want in my array ?
For example,
I have a vector A(50,1) with values in ascending order from 1000 to
2500. What to do if I want to remove all values larger then 1755 and
create another vector ?
Thanks
```

one of the many solutions

% the big
b=1:10
% the small
s=b(b<=5)

```Ok, but how to do it in loop ?
I have something like that :
for i=1:50
for n = 1:251
f1(n) = (some expression with (i) )
f2(n) = (some expression with (i) )
f3(n) = (some expression with (i) )
f4(n) = (some expression with (i) )
and I want to save only values :
f1 <= 150;
f2 >= -2400;
f3 <= 450;
f4 >= -2700;

- how ?
```

How about something like this? (not sure if this is what you mean)

indices=find(f1<=150);
f1=f1(indices);
```

```Why do it in the loop?  Matlab is much more efficient when using
logical indexing (which has made find() pretty irrelevent):
f1 = f1(f1<=150);
or f1(f1<=150) = [];
Both of these presume that f1 is a vector.  if f1 is a matrix, you need
to to either reshape to a vector or use a magic value (0, nan, -99999,
whatever's appropriate to the data) to indicate what's not wanted.

if you _have_ to do it in the loop, then you need another loop
variable, one for each f1, like this:

j = 1;
k = 1;
....
> for i=1:50
>    for n = 1:251
>         f1(j) = (some expression with (i) )
% if this value doesn't meet the criteria for keeping, j will not be
incremented, and will be overwritten next loop
if fi(j) <= 150; j = j+1; end;
>         f2(k) = (some expression with (i) )
Same for f2, etc.
>         f3(n) = (some expression with (i) )
>         f4(n) = (some expression with (i) )
