seacrhing/indexing a vector

I am trying to index a vector so I can establish the location of a given number. So for example, if x = 5 10 15 20 25 I can search for 20 and be given teh answer that 20 is the 4th number in the vector.

In a previous code I acheieved this with the line of code:

[c index] = min(abs(g-h));

However if I try:

[c index] = x

It does not work. Please can someone offer some help as to how I can search along a vector for a specific value and identify the location of the value?

Thank you
