@dmfwlansejr: Do you have a reason for storing a numeric vector inside a scalar cell array?

If you want, you can access X1 as
X1=11;
X2=22;
u{1}=[X1,X2];
u{1}(1) % this will yield ans = 11;
The above notation means:
Access the first element of the cell array u, which is [11 22]. Then, access the first element of the first element, which is 11.
However, if you want to keep X1 and X2 in separate elements of the cell array,
u{1} = X1;
u{2} = X2;
u{1} % this will yield ans = 11;
u{2} % this will yield ans = 22;

X1=11;
X2=22;
u{1}=[X1,X2];
u{1}
ans = 1×2
11 22
% To access "one" element
u{1}(1)
ans = 11
u{1}(2)
ans = 22
