@Mohammad Abdalnasir Khalid Al-Hiyali: Please do not paste images of code: paste the code as text and then format it correctly using the {} Code button.

It would be best for you to copy your code, paste it to yout Question, and then use the {}Code button to format it.
You can replace your entire if block by one statement that multiplies a logical-index vector by the values of the function in that region. Use this assignment to ‘y’ instead:
y = (x<0.5).*(m*x+b) + ((x>=0.5) & (x<30.5)).*(upper_limit_y) + (x>30.5).*(-m*x+b);
I tested it and it works.
