I have a code for the Vector Newton Raphson method (which solves 2 functions that are a function of both x and y) and I am getting the error 'Subscripted assignment dimension mismatch' at line 17 and 18. If anyone has any clue how to fix this problem to where my code runs smoothly I would really appreciate it!
x=15;
y=12;
v=[x;y];
tol=.01;
loopcnt=0;
Maxloop=56;
while loopcnt<Maxloop
f1t=-sind(x)-sind(x+y);
f1b=-sind(x+y);
f2t=cosd(x)+cosd(x+y);
f2b=cosd(x+y);
Jacobian=[f1t f1b;f2t f2b];
f1=cosd(x)+cosd(x+y)-1;
f2=sind(x)+sind(x+y)-1.1;
F=[f1;f2];
vNew=v-inv(Jacobian)*F;
vNew(1,1)=xNew
vNew(2,1)=yNew
xNew=x
yNew=y
if (vNew-vOld)>tol
else
break
end
loopcnt=loopcnt+1;
end

Please do not let us guess, which one is the line 17 and 18. But, by the way, it is impossible that the line 18 stops with an error, if the code stops in line 17 already.
The code should stop in the line "vNew(1,1)=xNew" also due to an unknown variable "xNew".

For the community to help you better, please make sure you provide code that reproduces the issue. As Jan Simon pointed out, define xNew, vOld etc.
