say amount = [a, b, c, d, e, f,] where a,b,c etc are numbers in an array.
Want to then output a list like this as an output with the same text string beforehand repeating but with the different values in this instance as there are 6 values to output:
For example i want the output to be:
The amount is: a
The amount is: b
The amount is: c
etc....
Want it to keep outputting until all values of amount are displayed like this

The simple and efficient MATLAB approach is to use fprintf:
amount = [0,2,3,5,13,7];
fprintf('The amount is %d\n',amount);
The amount is 0 The amount is 2 The amount is 3 The amount is 5 The amount is 13 The amount is 7

Use for loop:
amount = [a, b, c, d, e, f];
for i=1:length(amount)
disp(['The amount is: ',amount(i)]);
end
