Problem 51610. Find the nearest value to the given one

You are given
  • a non-empty vector of unique integer values vec
  • a value val for which you need to find the nearest one.
If two numbers are at the same distance, you need to choose the smallest one.
Example
vec=[17, 7, 11, 10, 12, 4]
val=9
If we sort vec in the ascending order, we have [4, 7, 10, 11, 12, 17] then to the left of number val=9 there is the number 7 and to the right the number 10. Since 10 is closer than 7, the correct answer is 10.
If val=8, the correct answer is 7.
