x = 0.4:0.01:0.5
x = 1x11
0.4000 0.4100 0.4200 0.4300 0.4400 0.4500 0.4600 0.4700 0.4800 0.4900 0.5000
idx = find(x==0.41)
idx = 1x0 empty double row vector

Welcome to the world of floating point numbers! Here not all numbers can be represented exactly in binary form.
Stephen has provided an extensive list of material which you can refer to - for detailed information and explainations regarding the same.
Also, see - ismembertol.

Thank you for the tip. My problem was actually the following:
A = zeros(1,100);
x = zeros(1,100);
for i = 1:100
x(i) = 0.01*randi([38 45],1,1);
if ismember(0.41,x(i));
A(i) = 10;
else
A(i) = -1;
end
end
So I was shoked to see that x was sometimes 0.41 but still not picking from the code. I have just changed ismember by ismembertol and now everything is fine.

Testing for exact equivalence of binary floating point numbers should be avoided.
Compare the values, are they actually the same? (hint: no):
x = 0.4:0.01:0.5;
fprintf('%.40f\n', x(2), 0.41)
0.4100000000000000310862446895043831318617 0.4099999999999999755750934582465561106801
The recommended approach is to compare the absolute difference against a tolerance:
tol = 1e-5;
abs(x(2)-0.41)<tol
ans = logical
1
This is worth reading as well:
