Can someone show me an example of a function that receives a temperature in degrees Fahrenheit ( F ) as input argument, and returns the temperature in both degrees Celsius ( C ) and degrees Kelvin ( K ), in this order.
Im so stuck on this last question

C(1,:) = 5/9 *(F-32); K(2,:) = C + 273.15;

Write a function like this
function CK = convertFahrenheit (F)
% CONVERTFAHRENHEIT - converts temperature
% CK = CONVERTFAHRENHEIT (F) concerts the temperature value(s) F, measured in Fahrenheit to
% the corresponding temperatures in degrees Celsius (first column of CK) and
% Kelvin (second column of CK).
CK(1,:) = F(:)-32 ... ; % conversion to degrees Celsius
CK(2,:) = CK(1,:) - 273.13 % conversion to Kelvin

No, those are line continuation "signals" or indicators. Use it when you have a very long line and you want to continue it on the next line. Normally it's the last thing on a line, though you can have a comment after it if you want, but not code like you did. Jos used them to indicate that that is where you're supposed to complete the code. He didn't do it all for you and you should know the formulas, so replace the ... with the actual code. It's your homework, not his so he didn't do it all for you. You have to finish it.

Function CK = convertFahrenheit(F) [C,K]
C(1,:) = 5/9 *(F-32); K(2,:) = C + 273.15;
heres my attempt im stuck

You want to store the result in the single variable CK, not in two separate variables C and K
You can concatenate two variables into a single one afterwards
CK = [C K]
or you can fill the columns of CK more directly:
CK(:,1) = ..
CK(:,2) = ..
I strongly suggest you start reading the Getting Started section of the documentation, though, to learn about variables and their meaning.
