How can I write a program in a script file that creates and 饾憶 脳 饾憵 matrix with elements that have the following values. The value of each element in the first row is the number of the column. The value of each element in the first column is the number of the row, The rest of the elements each has a value equal to the sum of the element above it and the element to the left.

First, I solved it with this code
n = input('Choose your number n : ')
m = input('Choose your number m : '); % n, m should be a positive integer
V = zeros(n, m);
V(1,:) = 1:m; V(:,1) = 1:n;
for a = 2:n;
for b = 2:m;
V(a,b) = V(a-1,b) + V(a,b-1)
end
end
but This code made me nervous, because there are many result of matrix in command file.

Note that your code displays a lot of matrixes because you haven't placed a semicolon when defining V. You can fix it easily
clear,clc
n = 5;
m = 6;
V = zeros(n,m);
V(1,:) = 1:m; V(:,1) = 1:n;
for a = 2:n;
for b = 2:m;
V(a,b) = V(a-1,b) + V(a,b-1);
end
end
V
V = 5脳6
1 2 3 4 5 6 2 4 7 11 16 22 3 7 14 25 41 63 4 11 25 50 91 154 5 16 41 91 182 336
For the rest, I believe your code works correctly.

Hi Davide,
here is a method that uses one for loop instead of two:
n = 5
m = 6
V = zeros(n,m);
V(:,1) = 1:n;
for k = 2:m
V(:,k) = cumsum(V(:,k-1)) +1;
end
V
V =
1 2 3 4 5 6
2 4 7 11 16 22
3 7 14 25 41 63
4 11 25 50 91 154
5 16 41 91 182 336
