Write a Matlab function that will accept two row vectors (A and B) as inputs. The function computes the row vector C that is the term-by- term product of A and B (that is, C1= A1*B1, C2=A2*B2, and so on), and that then computes the values of the function sin(x) for each value of C and stores these values in the row vector D. The
