Problem with the commands

 Hi,I type the following commands to get the max of a and the index of that max.  My expected answer is: val = 15ind = 2But after I typed the following commands, I got an error message.  Could you please let me know how to write the commands correctly?Thank you. Here are the commands I typed in Octave: >> aa =    1.00000   15.00000    2.00000    0.50000>> [val. ind] = max (a)parse error:  syntax error>>> [val. ind] = max (a)          ^

Re: Problem with the commands

 Try replacing the period with a comma. Sorry, I should have sent the first message to the mailing list as wellOn Mon, Sep 9, 2019, 8:40 AM Brett Green <[hidden email]> wrote:Try replacing the period with a comma.- Brett GreenOn Mon, Sep 9, 2019, 8:37 AM Cheung <[hidden email]> wrote:Hi,I type the following commands to get the max of a and the index of that max.  My expected answer is: val = 15ind = 2But after I typed the following commands, I got an error message.  Could you please let me know how to write the commands correctly?Thank you. Here are the commands I typed in Octave: >> aa =    1.00000   15.00000    2.00000    0.50000>> [val. ind] = max (a)parse error:  syntax error>>> [val. ind] = max (a)          ^
