Sorry for the vague title, I asked a similar question earlier very poorly and I extracted the most fundamental concept that I am trying to wrap my head around and I hope I will be articulate enough this time.
I want to sort elements accordingly;
I have 3 elements in my SORTING array, 3, 7 and 11
My input is 4.1, since this is closest to 3, the output will be equal to 3. Looking at it, it seems intuitive but I am struggling on how to break this down to explain it to MATLAB
In reality I am working with numbers sensitive to the 4th decimal place, but I am trying to understand the concept behind this sorting method
SORTING = [3 7 11]';
input = 4.1;
output = 3;
