# I need some help with my code

Here is my code.

cvx_end

and here is my error code

Unable to convert ‘cvx’ to ‘sym’.

To me whatever yo try model leads to a nonconvex model. And hence you cannot formulate it in cvx
because the whole point of cvx is to prevent you from doing that.

As @Erling says, multiplication of variables is generally non-convex, and is not allowed in CVX, except in GP mode. sym variables can not be mixed with CVX variables or expressions.
