# I want to create a code that tells me the location of the number I entered whenever the function varies from trial to trial.

a = randperm(5);
b = [1 2 3 4 5];
matrix = b(a)
number = input('Please enter a number');
number = position % A code that tells you the location of the number you entered.
% But I think this code is wrong.
if position == 1
matrix(:,1) = [ ]
elseif position == 2
matrix(:,2) = [ ]
elseif position == 3
matrix(:,3) = [ ]
elseif position == 4
matrix(:,4) = [ ]
elseif position == 5
matrix(:,5) = [ ]
end
I would like to create a matrix that is missing if I enter one of the 1-5 numbers in the above random function.
For example, if I enter 2 in 3 2 4 5 1 matrix, 3 4 5 1 matrix must be created
So I want to know which of the random functions 3 2 4 5 1 is located at which number of times I entered.
The problem is that it is a random function, so the matrix varies from trial to trial.
So I want to create a code that tells me the location of the number I entered whenever the function varies from trial to trial.

Am I correct?
number = input('Please enter a number'); % input number
matrix(number) = []; % delete corresponding number position element from the matrix
