Write a function called halfsum that takes as input a matrix and computes the sum of its elements that are in the diagonal or are to the right of it. The output arguments name is summa.
I have absolutely no idea how to start with this problem. How am I meant to use a for-loop for this?
Thank you very much

Look at function diag and triu

total = 0;
for idx = 1:size(a,1)
total = total + a(idx,idx);
and for the indices to the right of it... (assuming its square).
total = 0;
for idx = 1:size(a,2)-1
total = total + a(idx,idx+1);

function summa = halfsum(inp_mat)
summa = zeros(2,1); % first element is sum of diagonal elements, second is sum of diagonal to right
summa(1) = sum(diag(inp_mat)) %diagnal elemts
summa(2) = sum(diag(inp_mat, 1)) % right to diagonal
