I would like to write a code to calculate if a array, for example:
[6 7 4 8 9] has maximum elements above 5 (this number will be equal to number of elements) or not.
Here 4 out 5 elements are above 5 so the output will show "max elements greater than 5".
In case the array was [2 3 5 8 9] 3 elements are less than or equal to 5(output: "max elements less than 5" ).

Are you trying to determine if most of the values in the vector are greater than or equal to 5? That's how I understood the description but your 2nd example doesn't follow that rule so I'm confused.

@Adam_Danz its my mistake....I corrected it now. :)

a = [6 7 4 8 9];
val = numel(a);
if sum(a >= val) > val/2
disp(['Max elements greater than or equal to: ' num2str(val)]);
else
disp(['Max elements less than: ' num2str(val)]);
end
change the vector 'a' as you wish
