Hi I have been told you can convert any for loop to a while loop. If so I don't see how you could convert the following to a while loop?
for i = 1:5
disp(10 * i);
end
Thanks.

I'm not sure why a while loop would be better in this case (because it adds a couple of more lines of code) but here is the while equivalent to the above for loop
k = 1;
while k<=5
disp(10*k);
k=k+1;
end
Note that with this code, we have to manage the initialization of k, the incrementing of k and ensure that the condition has been set correctly.

Thanks I know it would not be better although I just wanted so see how the code could be written another way.
