Hello, everyone I have 91 variables in workspace. The size of all variables is same e.g
Z1=133×8
Z2=133×8
Z3=133×8
.........
.........
Z91=133×8
I am trying to find the mean of rows (35-36) for each variable by using for loop given below
for i=1:91;
end
but it does not work. Any guidance will be appreciated. Thanks

The simplest solution is do not have 90 variables in your workspace and then try to perform calculations on them all. MATLAB is really efficient when operating on arrays, and if you had just one array then all you would need is one call to mean. How simple can it get?
If you get all of variables by importing some data then import them into one ND array and your task will be trivial to solve. Currently you have a task that can only be solved by writing ugly, complex, slow, buggy, hard-to-debug code.

why do you have 91 variables named sequentially in the workspace? Why not use a 3D matrix?!
You only need one variable called Z.
Z = rand(133,8,91);
then to calculate mean, all you need is one line,
Z_m = mean(A(35:36,:,:))

+1. Of course. Using "Z1, Z2, ..." is the problem. As soon as a cell array or multi-dimensional array is used, the calculation of the mean gets trivial.

@ Stephen Cobeldick , Jan Simon and KL thank all of you for guidance. @ KL I checked your code it works well.
