As part of a University project, I have to program a function that gives me a number that is "the sub-multiplier of y2(xi)-y1(xi) closest to h, while stil beeing inferior or equal to h"

I have y2(xi), y1(xi) and h, but I have no idea how to program this opération. Any help?

Opportunities for recent engineering grads.

It doesn't help me: I need an answer clsoe to a numerical valor, and fminsearch will only give me the lowest possible answer

Thank you, that's part of the solution I need. But how do i create a vector of sub-multipliers?
