For mathematical questions about MATLAB; questions purely about the language, syntax, or runtime errors would likely be better received on Stack Overflow. MATLAB is a high-level language and interactive programming environment for numerical computation and visualization developed by MathWorks.

MATLAB (Matrix Laboratory) is a high-level language and interactive programming environment for numerical computation and visualization developed by MathWorks. MATLAB can be used when performing tasks such as signal processing and communications, image and video processing, computational finance, and computational biology. It is the foundation for a number of other tools, including Simulink and various toolboxes that extend its core capabilities.

In addition, MATLAB is a proprietary product of MathWorks. This means that, unlike other GNU GPL open source languages, both programmers and users must own a valid software license for running MATLAB code. There are several open source alternatives to MATLAB, in particular GNU Octave, which offers bidirectional syntactic compatibility with MATLAB, Scilab, SciPy, and Julia.

You could think about posting your question on Stack Overflow. They've got plenty of questions/answers already there.
