Why is the size in bytes for the two matrices different?
x = 1:2:10
y = [1:2:10]
whos x
whos y
The output shows that the two arrays have different sizes (24 bytes and 40 bytes).
x =
1 3 5 7 9
y =
1 3 5 7 9
Variables in the current scope:
Attr Name Size Bytes Class
==== ==== ==== ===== =====
x 1x5 24 double
Total is 5 elements using 24 bytes

y 1x5 40 double

Clear your variables and try again and see if it still happens. Doesn't happen for me.
x = 1:2:10
