• You are attempting to multiply a non-square matrix by itself, causing a dimension mismatch.
• MATLAB does not allow you to square all the elements in the matrix in a single operation.
• You must use the ** operator instead of the ^ operator.
• You cannot square matrices that have a 0 as the first element.

• v = 1:10
• v = (10)

#### Q51.What is a difference between global variable and persistent variables?

• Global variables are accessible outside the function scope; persistent variables are not.

#### Q52. How is the random seed for MATLAB's random number generator first initializedin a MATLAB Session?

• Seed is set to a value based on the current time on startup.
• Seed is set to a static default value on startup.

#### Q58. In MATLAB, the `imfilter` command performs a convolution operation between an image and a matrix.

The original image appears slightly blurred because the convolution smoothed out the image (removed noise). Why do you think this happened?

``````h = ones(5,5)/25;
imshow(imfilter(img,h));
``````
• `h` is a Gaussian filter that adds to 1. Its intended effect is to highlight image edges.
