# triple intergral in matlab

To perform triple integration in MATLAB, you can use either numerical integration or symbolic integration. Here are the steps for both approaches:

Numerical Integration:

1. Define the function to be integrated as a MATLAB function.
```main.m```f = @(x, y, z) x^2 + y^2 + z^2;
```32 chars2 lines```
1. Use the `integral3` function to integrate the function over the desired limits.
```main.m```integral3(f, x1, x2, y1, @(x) y2(x), z1, @(x, y) z2(x, y))
```59 chars2 lines```

In this function call, `x1`, `x2`, `y1`, `y2`, `z1`, and `z2` are the limits of integration for each variable. Note that we are using anonymous functions to define the limits of integration for `y` and `z`, since they depend on `x`.

Symbolic Integration:

1. Define the symbolic variables and the function to be integrated as symbolic expressions.
```main.m```syms x y z
f = x^2 + y^2 + z^2;
```32 chars3 lines```
1. Use the `int` function to integrate the function over each variable.
```main.m```int(int(int(f, z, z1, z2), y, y1, y2), x, x1, x2)
```50 chars2 lines```

In this function call, we are using the `int` function to perform repeated integration over each variable. The limits of integration are specified as arguments to the `int` function.

Note that symbolic integration can be slower than numerical integration for more complex functions, but it can provide exact solutions in some cases where numerical integration would be impractical or inaccurate.
