# matlab count elements in matrix

To count the number of elements in a matrix in MATLAB, you can use the `numel`

function. Here's an example:

```
matrix = [1, 2, 3; 4, 5, 6; 7, 8, 9];
num_elements = numel(matrix);
```

In this example, the `numel`

function is used to count the number of elements in the `matrix`

variable. The result will be stored in the `num_elements`

variable.

Please note that the `numel`

function counts the total number of elements in the matrix, including both rows and columns.
