WTF!
I know the function interp!! but I thougth I must program it... :(
That's true, the instructions here do indicate that you're supposed to program it from scratch (e.g. find a(n) & a(n+1)).
For convenience, it would be useful if the code input variables were related to the variables listed in the solution window. We are given a, b, alpha, and beta in the Test Suite; the function that we are to type involves vb, va, a, and b. Sure, we can update it, but it just seems careless.
This is my first solving problem
First find the position then finding the gap length between arrays.
enjoyed this problem!
The tests do not check va equal to a(1) or a(n).
Test cases added to include for corner values as well.

the question language must be improved  flank it and all is absurd, i think

The wording on this was a little off, I had to review results to see what the aim was. But not difficult. Thanks for the challenge.

tricky

kind of pointless, since the function already exists

u cannot use 'mean',if not use 3.5,for instance 3.2 3.3
u should use interp1

@arsenic, your comment on the main post is deleted because it revealed the answer. It is not the best practice to do so.

I couldn't remember interp1 but I formed a very silly code to do the same

hi Giorgio, can you provide an explanation for this? it seems really hard for me
varargin is the input variable which we can use to give multiple inputs to a function in matlab. So the inputs were (va,a,b) which here is
varargin{1} = va;
varargin{2} = a;
varargin{3} = b;

Absolutely for the tests...

this won't work when the point is not in middle of 2 elements, for example a=3.3 in test 1
