I am writing a program. I want to display the statement 'job done' as the output in the Command Window. How can I do it?

To display text in the Command Window, use disp or fprintf.
disp('job done')
or
fprintf('job done \n')

As mentioned by KSSV, you can use fprintf.
For the variables you have shown above:
fprintf('a = %.4f \nb = %.4f \nx = %.4f \n', a, b, x)
This example allows you to print to 4 fixed points of precision, but this can be tailored to your need by changing the number after the '%.' .

Even though a and b are displayed the same, that doesn't mean their contents are the same. The == operator checks for exact down-to-the-last-bit equality. In this case, a and b are close but close doesn't count. See this Answers post for an alternative.

A=6
for k =1:5
if A<=15
A=A + 3
else
A = A+2
end
end
