My code is
x = [2.32, 4.23, 1.92, 3.24, 2.13];
points = [3, 1, 2];
the first_answer gives 1.92, 2.32, 4.23 the second_answer gives 1.92 and i need the first answer to give me the value 3 which is the smallest x-value, not it's position of X which is 1 but the number it is assigned to which is 3. I do not know what code I need to achieve this. Thanks in advance for any help thanks
