1. ## Matlab financial help

I'm quite new to matlab and im having problems with one of the questions for uni.

Calculate the total amount of an inputted investment after n years of growth where the annual interest rate may change at the start of the year but not during the year the annual interest rates should be inputted into a 1D array. The programme should also draw a graph which shows the amount of the investment at the end of each of the n years.

what i've got so far is

p=input('Give the initial amount invested: £');
n=input('Give the number of years: ');
disp('Give the interest rates on successive lines: ')

for i=1:n
x(i)=input('');

end

y=p*(1+(mean(x))/100)^n

fprintf('The total amount is £%1.2f\n',y)

I also did it as a loop, but didn't know which would be betta for a graph

clear
clc
p=input('Give the initial amount invested: £');
n=input('Give the number of years: ');
disp('Give the interest rates on successive lines: ')

for i=1:n
x(i)=input('');

end

for j=1:n
p1=(p*((x(j)/100)))+p;

p=p1;

end

fprintf('The total amount is £%1.2f\n',p1)

I have no idea how to plot the graph is my formula wrong or am I just missing something. I've been at this for a few days now any help would be appreciated
