I have ' f ' as a vector of different functions and I want to plot is simultaneously in different figures but I'm not able to do it, error is showing ''Invalid indexing or function definition. Indexing must follow MATLAB indexing. Function arguments must be symbolic variablesand function body must be sym expression''. But when I ommitting the loop in plot and by separate plotting I'm getting the plot for each h = 2/3/4. So please help me how to fix this problem.

K(x) is known function of diffrential eqn and again I need this function while taking function inner product with weighting fn " w ".If I'm considering indexing at beginning it again showing error.

Here,f(h) is a symbolic expression and not a symfun and is assigned to a variable d,Hence you have to use subs(d,x) inorder to get the value of d at x
for h = 2:nb
figure(h)
d = f(h);
x = 0:0.01:1;
plot(x,subs(d,x),'b-','linewidth',2);
hold on
grid on
plot(x,a(x),'r-','linewidth',1);
xlabel('x')
ylabel('f(x)')
legend('Numerical method','Analytical method')
hold off;
end

Thank you!
Code is working now.
