I am getting this error (Index exceeds the number of array elements. Index must not exceed 1) for my code and unsure why. Any help would be appreciated.

syms f(x);
f(x)=(-4.868e-7)*(4*x^3)+(1.496e-4)*(3*x^2)+(-0.0094)*(2*x)+(-0.3324);
i=1;
xl(i)=150;
xu(i)=200;
iu(i)=0;
il(i)=0;
fu(i)=f(xu(i));
fl(i)=f(xl(i));
xr(i)=xu(i)-((fu(i)*(xl(i)-xu(i))/(fl(i)-fu(i))));
fr(i)=f(xr(i));
ea = zeros(1,i);
if f(xr(i))~=0
while i<100
i=i+1;
if fl(i-1)*fr(i-1)<0
xu(i)=xr(i-1);
xl(i)=xl(i-1);
iu(i)=iu(i-1);
il(i)=il(i-1)+1;
if il(i)>=2
fl(i)=fl(i-1)/2;
fu(i)=fr(i-1);
end
else
xl(i)=xr(i-1);
xu(i)=xu(i-1);
il(i)=il(i-1);
iu(i)=iu(i-1)+1;
if iu(i)>=2
fu(i)=fu(i-1)/2;
fl(i)=fr(i-1);
end
end
xr(i)=xu(i)-((fu(i)*(xl(i)-xu(i))/(fl(i)-fu(i))));
fr(i)=f(xr(i));
ea(i)=abs((xr(i)-xr(i-1))/xr(i))*100;
if ea(i)<0.05
break;
end
end
end
Index exceeds the number of array elements. Index must not exceed 1.

To debug this, type the following at the command prompt:
dbstop if error
Then run your code. When the error occurs, the program will pause at the line causing the error with all variables intact. Then you can examine the variables on that line to figure out the cause of the error. In your case, some of the variables are scalars but you are using an index of 2, hence the error. Backtrack in your code to figure out why these variables are not the size you expected.

Hi Lily,
You are getting the below error from the below line:
xr(i)=xu(i)-((fu(i)*(xl(i)-xu(i))/(fl(i)-fu(i))));
Here "fl" and "fu" are 1x1 syms, and the code is trying to access the second index, due to which it is erroring out. Please reiterate your code once and make appropriate changes, like accessing the proper index or assigning the proper type to the "fl" and "fu.".
I hope this helps!

I'm confused on how I would fix the error.
